Criminal Investigations

The Criminal Investigations Division is staffed by five commissioned officers and one civilian employee. They are responsible for handling over 600 cases each year.

CID detectives are active participants in the St. Louis Metropolitan Major Case Squad. They are called upon about twice a year to assist other agencies with investigating serious crimes. These crimes are usually homicides and kidnappings. In return for the loan of our officers we too can and have requested the help of the Major Case Squad in the event that we have a serious crime to investigate.

The Crime Scene Technicians are also under the command of the CID. This unit is responsible for identifying, photographing and collecting evidence at crime scenes. Some evidence requires additional processing once it is brought back to the Sheriff’s Office. The technicians have several pieces of lab equipment at their disposal to handle these special items. The Crime Scene Technicians are also responsible for property and evidence control. When evidence is collected by any officer it must be turned into them to be cataloged and placed into a secure vault for safekeeping.

If you need speak with an investigator within the bureau please call 636-528-8546.

It is my pleasure to present the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Five-Year Strategic Plan. Its purpose is to help the organization do a better job and get everyone working together to achieve our goals. This plan will serve as a roadmap for moving from where we are today to where we would like to be in the future. It will help keep the organization on track, and responsive to change while remaining faithful to its mission, vision, and core values.
