The Investigative Division currently consists of 11 members. Captain Carlos Ricks and Lieutenant Romek Lankosz oversee the day-to-day operations of the Division. The remaining members include two evidence technicians, a juvenile crimes investigator, and seven general case investigators.
All incidents reported to the Sheriff's Office, that are not cleared by the Patrol Division, are assigned for investigation. The Investigations Division continues to use a case management program. This enables us to keep up with statistics, dispositions, clearance rates, and accountability of all crimes reported.
In 2015, the Investigations Division was assigned a total of 1,736 cases. Of those 1,736 cases, 913 of them were cleared, with a 68% clearance rate. The 68% clearance rate is over 2.5 times the State average of about 27%.
The Investigations Division will continue to work closely with it's neighboring law enforcement agencies in an effort to continue to reduce crime or at least maintain the crime rate to that comparable with the state and strive to give the citizens of Nash County all of the support and professionalism they deserve.
