The Position
Criminal Investigators perform criminal investigations involving violations of federal and/or State law. The investigative process is initiated following a formal request for services or as a coordinated effort with federal, State, or local law enforcement and criminal justice agencies. Criminal Investigators utilize standard investigative and law enforcement techniques.
Incumbents are assigned responsibility for investigative assignments or functions within an enforcement area (e.g., task force, general investigations unit). Positions at this level receive general supervision from a Supervising Investigator. Work is reviewed through case reports, activity reports, meetings and as the need arises. Assignments are performed independently or require providing direction to lower level investigators assigned to the case.
Under direction from the Chief Criminal Investigator, the incumbent will review information and conduct background investigations to determine validity of information and appropriate use of sources; conduct interviews with individuals, witnesses, suspects and criminal justice agency officials, and other sources to obtain information regarding the criminal investigation; and gather and preserve evidence, execute search warrants, take photographs, document information, transport, secure, and analyze evidence by following proper evidentiary procedure. Incumbents establish an investigative plan including identifying and interviewing witnesses, identifying untrue statements; identifying company and assets owned or listed in sales literature; determining evidence needed to prove case; and identifying any additional jurisdictional issues. In addition, investigators prepare, obtain and execute legal documents such as affidavits, search warrants, arrest warrants, and subpoenas in support of the criminal justice process and criminal prosecution; and prepare detailed investigative reports of the investigative process in a chronological order to include: violations committed, documented evidence, witness statements and provide testimony in a court of law.
