We are committed to the professional investigations of all crimes and critical incidents ocurring in Lake County. In an effort to ensure complete, non-biased and successful investigations, the Lake County Sheriff's Office has adopted and implemented the attached policies and guideleines. Our policies are fluid documents and evolve as best practices, training and legislature dictate. Policies are a form of guidance and not intended to be an absolute requirement for case investigations to be successfully prosecuted. It is impossible to cover every scenario experienced by law enforcement and therefore, each case's procedure will vary from the next. Investigators are trained to distinguish these differences and apply the various methods, techniques and procedures accordingly.
The policies available online are condensed however; full copies of our policies to include SOPs maybe ontained through our office.
