The Robbery Unit is staffed by one lieutenant, two sergeants and 16 detectives. Detectives are tasked with the investigation of the crimes of armed robbery, unarmed or 'strong-arm' robbery, home-invasion robbery, carjacking, and robbery by sudden snatching. Additionally, the Robbery Unit oversees the enforcement of the Jacksonville Business Security Code and the Florida Convenience Business Security Act.
Although bank robbery is a Federal crime that is generally investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Robbery Unit handles the investigation of all local bank robberies as well
