Financial Crimes
Intelligence Division

The Intelligence Division of the Cherokee Sheriff's Office was established in January 2009 in conjunction with the agency's involvement in the Georgia Terrorism Intelligence Project, a program funded through the Department of Homeland Security. The responsibilities of this Division are to provide a gateway for information and intelligence sharing within the agency and liaison with other agencies for threats specific to critical infrastructure.

In addition, the Intelligence Division is responsible for providing analytical support to the many divisions of the Sheriff's Office; this support includes geographical mapping of crimes, analysis of crime trends, data recovery and analysis of electronic devices, video and audio enhancements, crime scene processing, and automated fingerprint identification.
