Sheriff's Office


The Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office Investigators are criminal Investigators that provide an important support function to the overall operation of the Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators in this office investigate primarily felony level offenses that include but are not limited to suspicious deaths, sex crimes, property crimes, fraud, theft, assault, burglary, robbery, automobile theft, child abuse/neglect and arson. Many of these complaints are follow up investigations that originated with the patrol division of the office. Some, however, are direct calls from the general public to the Investigators of this office. Complaints/Crimes are primarily investigated through the interview and if relevant, interrogation, of victims, witnesses and suspects as well as the gathering and examination of various forms of evidence.

Citizens are encouraged to work with their local Sheriff’s office in investigation and prosecution of criminals.
