Special Investigations Unit

Youth Services Unit

Digital Evidence Recovery

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Unit is a combined unit consisting of Youth Services, the Special Victims Unit and Digital Evidence Recovery

The Youth Services Unit handles all cases involving youthful offenders (ages 6-15).  This unit works closely with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and the Juvenile Assessment Center (JAC) to provide services to the youth of Cumberland County.

The Special Victims Unit is responsible for investigations involving child sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect, as well as caretaker abuse against the elderly and/or disabled.  Investigations are conducted using a multidisciplinary approach in which investigators from the Sheriff’s Office work cooperatively with investigators from the Cumberland County Department of Social Services.  Investigators also collaborate with representatives from other community agencies (i.e. Cumberland County Schools, Southern Regional Area Health Education Center, Mental Health, etc) for any needed victim services.

The Sheriff’s Office Digital Evidence Recovery Specialist conducts complex forensic computer examinations for criminal investigations.  The examiner recovers evidence from computers, cellular telephones and other digital storage devices such as thumb drives, compact discs, DVD’s, secure digital cards, etc using forensically sound methodologies and provides expert testimony concerning data recovery.
