Investigations

The Cass County Sheriff’s Office Investigations Division is comprised of five full-time Investigators, three of which are assigned to general investigations and two assigned specifically to drug investigations. The Investigations Division assists Patrol Deputies in providing additional resources and follow-up, including interview and interrogation, processing evidence, transporting evidence to the crime lab, etc. The Investigations Division works closely with other County Departments, including Heath, Human and Veteran Services, by meeting daily to review intake reports to determine whether criminal charges should be pursued. The Investigations Division is also active in investigating ongoing cases, such as missing person’s investigations and other cases that have gone cold. The Division is often assisted by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension in these types of investigations. The Sheriff’s Office also became an Associate Member of the Paul Bunyan Drug Task Force, which allows our Investigators to share information and resources to further assist in drug related investigations. The Division also handles a large number of burglaries and financial related crimes in 2021, including frauds. The Division is also active in providing numerous presentations and trainings to Cass County residents, volunteers and employees
