Internal Affairs Unit
The Etowah County Sheriff's Office Internal Affairs Unit is made up of investigators within the Criminal Investigation Division. They conduct investigations for the Etowah County Sheriff's Office and Etowah County Detention Center at the direction of the Sheriff.
These Investigators receive personnel complaints from the public about the department or deputies. They conduct investigations to make sure that deputies follow policy and procedures in the performance of their duties. Investigators also review use of force reports for the department to determine if further inquiry is required.
Any findings are presented to the Administration of the Etowah County Sheriff's Office for review and to the Etowah County District Attorney's Office when necessary. The Internal Affairs Unit also assists other agencies at their request in cases involving administrative and internal invesitgations.
