The Detectives Division is comprised of an extremely skilled group of detectives who specialize in investigating major felony crimes like homicide, child abuse, fraud and burglary. Detectives Division members are also routinely called upon by outside agencies to assist with internal and officer involved investigation. Currently our Detectives Division is staffed by 4 Detectives, one Sergeant and overseen by the Chief of Special Operations.
The Detectives Division must be able to identify, preserve, and collect evidence at a crime scene. They must prepare reports for use by the county prosecutor in court. They have to testify in court and give accurate, detailed testimony relative to the results of criminal investigations. They must interview witnesses and suspects, prepare formal statements and arrest persons suspected of committing crimes based on probable cause or by warrant.
