Doug Smoot is the Woodson County Detective. He brings over 10 years of experience to the table and has acquired numerous hours of training over those years, to include the "Finding Words" Certification. This training is geared towards specialized techniques to investigate Child abuse cases.
Doug is assigned to cases by the Sheriff and Undersheriff. Theses cases are assigned after the patrol deputies complete their initial reports. Doug will then do follow-up on the major felony cases. He responds to crime scenes as they are discovered by deputies and processes the scene.
He is responsible for collecting and processing evidence at the scenes. He will also prepare affidavits for search warrants and arrest warrants. His follow-up consists of also interviewing suspects, victims and witnesses. The type of cases that he would normally be assigned to respond to are arson, burglaries, sex crimes, fatalities, and felony theft cases, to just name a few.
Doug is also a member of the Multi-County Drug Task Force that we are building with the neighboring county agencies. It is the goal of this task force to share information and help each other build cases to culminate into arrests for narcotic violations.
