More than a dozen criminal investigators are on staff at the Solicitor-General’s Office, consisting of two main divisions: Intake Investigations and Field Investigations. All of these investigators are certified by the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council (P.O.S.T.).
The Primary function of each investigator is to provide prosecution support to the Solicitor-General’s legal staff. Specifically, investigators locate and interview witnesses, conduct supplemental pretrial investigations, complete and execute arrest and search warrants and complete a variety of other investigative tasks. Investigators also assist other law enforcement agencies and conduct specialized investigations when needed.
Our investigator unit is led by our Chief Investigator Keith Blander and Deputy Chief Investigator Boykin Jones.
