General Investigations Unit


About the General Investigations Unit

The General Investigations Unit (GIU) conducts follow-up investigations on felony-level crimes reported to the Sheriff’s Office that have occurred within the contract cities.  GIU investigators work a wide range of cases including, but not limited to homicides, assaults, robberies, burglaries, auto theft, sexual assaults, child abuse, and fraud/forgery cases.

The investigation process requires this unit to perform many tasks, including interviewing and taking statements from suspects, victims, and witnesses; photographing crime scenes; and processing latent fingerprints.  When the investigation has been completed, the case is then presented to the city attorney’s office serving the city where the offense occurred, or the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office for criminal prosecution.

GIU also handles all juvenile offenses and conducts follow-up investigations that are referred from other agencies, such as Ramsey County Community Human Services.
