Job Description and Duties

Deputies coordinate and advise at every stage of investigation and prosecution including providing legal support to investigations initiated by state agencies, legal advocacy for state operated digital forensic laboratories and coordination with out-of-state law enforcement on issues such as domesticating search warrants, extraditing suspects and working with federal partners. Deputies develop and present curricula in training programs for judges, prosecutors, law enforcement and the public on technology safety issues and legal updates.
