Patrol Officers typically investigate the crimes to which they respond. When a protracted investigation is called for, our investigator Sergeant James Bond is assigned to follow through. Child abuse, sex offenses, injury and death investigations, forensic collection, surveillance, crime prevention and court presentations are included in Bond’s list of responsibilities. Bond tracks crime trends, acts as our liaison with other agencies, including the State Attorney, and he shares criminal intelligence with other staff members.
Crime scene processing is performed either by Williston personnel, or with the assistance of the Levy County Sheriff’s Office or the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Experts from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office are of assistance.
