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. Sean Ward, the detective bureau is made up of four detectives with one detective assigned to Ashtabula County Children Services to investigate crimes against children.
