Criminal Investigations

The Criminal Investigations Division is responsible for investigating all types of persons and property crimes.

Division personnel provide specialized law enforcement response to assist patrol personnel in high risk situations, and are divided into five sections based on areas of responsibility. The Division is managed by a Lieutenant, who has the responsibility for all units. These five units include:

  1. Crimes Against Persons Unit
  2. Crimes Against Property Unit
  3. Neighborhood Enforcement Team (NET)
  4. Crisis Services Unit
  5. Crime and Intelligence Analysis Unit

The mission of the Investigations Unit is to identify, target, arrest and successfully prosecute individuals involved in criminal activity as well as recover any stolen property. 

Detectives investigate cases beyond the resources of the Patrol Division and participates in all forms of investigative activities including: conducting surveillance, serving arrest warrants and search warrants, and sex offender accountability.

Detectives investigate complex and demanding cases, which could take months, sometimes years to fully investigate.
