In 2007, the Citrus County Sheriff's Office contracted with the Department of Children & Families to provide child protective investigative services for Citrus County.  In this arrangement, the Sheriff's Office has been given full freedom and latitude to develop models of investigations that best serve the children in their community.  Using law enforcement and community resources, our investigative methods are now used in child protective investigations.
The Citrus County Sheriff's Office model is part of the Criminal Investigations Division and is identified as the Child Protective Investigations Section.  The section consists of two squads with daytime, evening and weekend coverage with a supervisor out in the field at all times.  The unit is staffed by non-sworn investigators and supervised by Lt. Dave Wyllie, a senior law enforcement officer with a background in child abuse/sex crime investigations.
