ADA, Okla. (KTEN)-- It wasn't Everett Babcock's appearances on Fatal Attraction or America's Most Wanted that landed him a position on the District 22 District Attorney’s Criminal Investigative Division.

"A lot of the crimes that our DA's investigators deal with are violent crimes, homicides,” district attorney Erik Johnson said. “We need an investigator that is seasoned, that is an expert in his field, and we feel like Everett Babcock fulfills that."

Babcock's career began in 1988, working for Sayre PD in Sayre, Oklahoma. He made a stop working for the district 2 DA's drug task force before making the move across state lines to work for the Kansas City Police Department.

That's where he's spent a majority of his career, over two decades-- working in several units, most notably investigating homicides.

"Things are going to be a little bit different here. I got spoiled in Kansas City. We had our own crime scene unit. We had our own digital technology,” Babcock said. “The advantage I have is this is where I originally came from. I know what it's like to work in a smaller agency and be limited."

Babcock's decision to come to Ada was family based, and to get back to his roots.

In that process, he hopes to spread his experience to other law enforcement agencies.

"There's a lot of great, younger law enforcement officers working in agencies across district 22, and I just want them to receive the benefit of his knowledge," DA Johnson explained.

"I teach officers across the country investigative things,” Babcock said. “I think that that's going to be handy here where they don't have the resources to go to that sort of training."
