Detective Bureau

The Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Office Detective Bureau is responsible for investigating criminal activity throughout Ashtabula County. Our detectives are trained to interview victims, witnesses and suspects and collect and analyze physical evidence. Their findings are then presented to the Ashtabula County Prosecutor’s Office for prosecution of the accused.

Under the command of Lt. James Kemmerle, the detective bureau is made up of seven detectives. Three full-time detectives and one part-time detective are assigned to the Drug Task Force and one detective is assigned to Ashtabula County Children Services to investigate crimes against children.
