Violent Crimes

The Leon County Sheriff’s Office Violent Crime Unit works a wide variety of cases from harassing phone calls, violations of injunctions, robberies to death and homicides investigations.

The detectives in the Violent Crime Unit typically have a vast amount of experience gained while working in other units before being moved into this highly specialized unit.  They attend extensive training in a number of areas to supplement their experience.

The Violent Crimes Unit works hand in hand with several other specialized units within the Sheriff’s Office, such as the Special Victims Unit, Internet Crimes Against Children Unit, Victim Advocates and the Crime Scene Unit. They also collaborate very closely with several outside agencies including the Tallahassee Police Department, surrounding Sheriff’s Offices, State Attorney’s Office, Medical Examiner’s Office, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), Florida Department of Children and Families, FBI, and ATF.
