Crime Investigations

If someone feels that he is the victim of a crime (as opposed to a civil matter) they should report it to law enforcement for investigation. If the crime occurred in city limits it should be reported to the Paris Police Department at 465-6351, Chrisman Police Department 269-2214 or Kansas Village Police Department 948-5621. If the crime occurred in Edgar County it should be reported to the Edgar County Sheriff’s Department at 465-4166 (Hume, Grandview, Metcalf, Redmon, and Vermilion). After the investigation is complete, one of the attorneys in the State’s Attorney’s Office will review the matter and make a determination whether criminal charges will be filed and what the charges will be.

    State’s Attorney

    The duty of the prosecutor is to seek justice, not merely to convict.

    The Edgar County State’s Attorney’s Office is dedicated to protecting the rights and ensuring the safety of the citizens of Edgar County and supporting the functions of county government. To that end, the Office of the State’s Attorney commences and prosecutes all criminal and traffic cases in the Circuit Court and initiates all dependency, neglect, abuse and delinquency juvenile petitions and proceedings. Further, we provide legal advice and representation to the Edgar County Board, elected officials and department heads as to their duties and responsibilities under the law.

    We are not able to file lawsuits on behalf of individuals or advise the public on the law.
