Criminal Investigation Division

Responsibilities

The Davidson County Sheriff's Office investigates every complaint of criminal activity submitted. As criminal acts become more intense and complicated, the investigation of such incidents require a more in-depth and specific investigation.

For incidents such as this, the Sheriff's Office assigns those investigations to a team of twelve highly trained men and women who have expertise in developing leads, recovering property, and successfully prosecuting those who commit those acts.

The Criminal Investigations Division is made up of ten full time detectives, one part time detective and the units commander, Captain Dewayne Miller.

Captain Miller started his career with the Davidson County Sheriff's Office in 1992 as a Patrol Deputy where he was a K-9 handler. In 1996 Captain Miller was promoted to Detective and was a member of the Breaking & Entering Task Force. Captain MIller attained the rank of Sergeant, Lieutenant and was promoted to his current assignment in 2014.

The investigators are led by Lieutenant Cory Mann and Lieutenant Wanda Thompson.

Lieutenant Mann started his career with the Sheriff's Office as a detention officer in 2001.  In 2003, Lt. Mann was transferred to the patrol division where he served as a patrol deputy, D.A.R.E Instructor and on the Warrant Squad.  Lt. Mann was promoted to Detective in 2007 and was transferred to the Professional Standards Unit in 2014 as Sergeant. In 2016 Lt. Mann was promoted to his current assignment in CID.
