The Investigations Division is supervised by a Detective Commander and is made up of 6 Investigators, 2 School Resource Officers, 1 Narcotics Officer assigned to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), 1 Crime Analysis Assistant, and an Evidence Custodian. Investigators are trained, experienced detectives who specialize in the investigation of deaths and crimes such as burglary, robbery, assault/battery, auto theft, identity theft, and document crime. During the course of an investigation, detectives may be called upon to interview witnesses and victims, interrogate suspects and offenders, and/or examine crime scenes for physical evidence with which to identify suspects.
Investigators are assigned to follow up on crimes that were initially reported to the uniformed patrol division. Investigators are subject to call-in 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, and members of the division are also sometimes called upon to work with other local, state, or federal agencies to assist with more serious or complex cases.
In 2017, there were 243 cases assigned for investigation.
