Lt. Jeff Wood
The Criminal Investigation Division (CID) of the Johnson County Sheriff's Office currently consists of three detectives.
Lt Jeff Wood is the Senior Criminal Investigator and CID supervisor.
Jennifer McLemore is our Special Victims Investigator.
Once a uniformed Johnson County Deputy takes a report, CID will begin a follow-up investigation. CID is responsible for processing and cataloging evidence at crime scenes. They also prepare affidavits for arrest warrants, search warrants, interview victims, witnesses, and suspects, and perform many other related duties.
CID investigates crimes ranging from illegal drug activity, theft of property, residential and commercial burglary, criminal mischief, identity theft, computer fraud, arson, sexual assaults, and homicides. These incidents may be investigated with assistance of the patrol deputies, the Prosecuting Attorney, and other law enforcement agencies.
While investigating a crime the CID detective will conduct their investigations in a professional manner that is conductive to the discovery of the truth and the successful prosecution of those who commit crimes in Johnson County.
Information obtained from the public is also very valuable in all types of investigations. Sheriff Stephens encourages anyone with information about criminal activity, or any ongoing criminal investigations, to contact the Criminal Investigation Division. You may call the tip line at 479-705-TIPS (8477).
