With 109 years of combined law enforcement experience, the Adams County Criminal Investigation Division (C.I.D.) consists of five full-time, seasoned law men with the shared passion to protect the citizens of Adams County.
The Investigation Division investigates all felony and serious misdemeanor crimes in Adams County and is proud to continue working toward bettering its 80 percent solve rate on reported crimes. Once a uniformed deputy makes a report, the C.I.D. will begin a follow-up investigation. The C.I.D. is responsible for processing and cataloging evidence at crime scenes. They also prepare affidavits for arrest and search warrants, interview victims, witnesses and suspects and perform many other related duties. In the courtroom, the investigators are the ones to present cases to the Grand Jury.
However, Investigators are not only seen on the crime scene and in the county’s courts – each member of the C.I.D. plays a vital part in the success of other branches of law enforcement as well as their community.
Apart from their duties working on crime scenes and following up on reports, our investigators assist patrol deputies in accidents involving fatalities. In addition to working with deputies in patrol, Investigators also work alongside the county’s Metro Narcotics Division by going in behind Metro agents and uncovering stolen property. This collaborative effort has helped to solve many burglary cases, and in some instances, larger, drug-related cases.
The C.I.D. also works with Adams County’s Neighborhood Watch program. Investigators attend meetings along with members of the public in efforts to connect with the community and answer questions. Investigators take these opportunities to make citizens aware of criminal activities in their area and to advise them on what to look for.
The C.I.D. also works with the Natchez Police Department, the MS Bureau of Investigations, the A.T.F., the U.S. Marshalls, the U.S. Secret Service and the F.B.I. as each agency works toward the goal of solving crime on any level.
