As the chief law enforcement officer of this jurisdiction, charged with the duty to see that laws are fairly enforced, the State Attorney has the responsibility to investigate certain illegal activities throughout the Circuit. This function is the primary responsibility of the Investigative Division. The Investigative Division is comprised of two major sections:

The Special Investigations Division conducts the investigations of matters such as organized criminal activity, public corruption, complex fraud, and white collar crime. These investigations are generally long term, complex and have Circuit-wide impact.

The Court Investigative Division renders assistance to felony and misdemeanor prosecutions at the intake stage and in case preparation for trial. The investigators act as liaisons between prosecutors and other law enforcement agencies and also assist prosecutors during trial.
