The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office announces the formation of a “Cold Case Symposium.” This symposium will concentrate on Escambia County cold case homicide investigations and will enlist the expertise of retired certified law enforcement detectives in our area.
The ECSO considers a case to be cold when they’ve exhausted all available leads and are not able to establish probable cause to make an arrest. However, just because a case is considered cold, that doesn’t mean anyone has forgotten about the victim or their families.
The symposium will begin in February of 2022 and will focus on six ECSO cold case homicides at a time. The ECSO asks that any retired certified law enforcement investigators interested in joining the symposium have certified law enforcement experience as a former homicide investigator.
“We have a number of retired deputies and law enforcement professionals who have offered their expertise in the past. We look to take advantage the years of experience these veteran law enforcement professionals bring. Just because someone is retired, doesn’t mean they have lost their experience and intuition. We hope that our current cold case investigators combined with volunteer experienced retirees, we can help close these cases and bring closure to the families.” – Sheriff Chip W. Simmons
