On-Scene Investigations

The Investigations Division coordinates the on-scene investigations of major incidents. Detectives investigate crimes that require an extended time commitment, expertise, or sensitivity. Detectives also conduct follow up on some crimes initiated through patrol reports. Serious crimes may require special expertise and more lengthy investigation than uniformed patrol officers can provide. The mission of the Investigations Division is to solve crimes and thoroughly prepare cases for prosecution.

Duties & Responsibilities

Responsibilities for this division include investigation of major crimes and crime series; sensitive investigation of sexual assaults and child abuse; and suppression of gangs and drugs.
