The Pitkin County Sheriff's Office Investigations division currently consists of two full time Investigators and one full time juvenile officer. The Sheriff's Office Investigators share an office with the Detectives from the Aspen Police Department. This helps with the tracking of crime and criminal activity in the Aspen/Pitkin County area. Pitkin County is a tourist based community, the majority of criminal activity is property related and alcohol involved crimes.
Initial crime reports are taken by the patrol staff. Those cases needing further investigation are forwarded to the investigators for follow up. Investigators are responsible for evidence collection, crime scene processing and interviewing witnesses and suspects. Each Investigator carries a case load of approximately seven cases at any given time.
