A road deputy responds to calls and tries to solve the case then and there. But not all cases are so easily solved.
The Detective Division of the Ross County Sheriff's Office handles all cases that need further investigation.
Homicides, burglaries, sexual assault cases and sexual child abuse are just some of the cases handed over to
the Detective Division. All cases are thoroughly investigated then the Detectives document all their efforts
and findings to present to the Prosecutors Office. Everything is evidence until the case is solved,
and no case is closed until it is solved.
Polygraph Examinations are an important part of a criminal investigation and
are done by Det. Tony
Wheaton at the Detective Division of the Ross County Sheriff's Office.
