The Chilton County Sheriff’s Office currently employs five Deputies as full-time investigators and one part-time investigator in the Criminal Investigative Division. The primary duties of the CID are to assist in the property crime division of the unit and the investigation of any violent crimes. All investigators attend training classes to stay informed with changing laws, investigative techniques, forensic development and many other topics. Chilton County CID investigators work closely with other investigators within Chilton County and surrounding counties, Butterfly Bridge (child advocacy), Department of Human Resources, Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences and the District Attorney’s Office. The Investigators do follow up investigations of reports taken by Patrol Deputies and handle complaints from the public. For the most part, these investigations are for felony crimes, from Thefts to Homicides and carry a large case load. The Investigators also participate in the execution of search warrants and assist the Narcotics Unit whenever it requires additional help on a case.
