The Investigations Division, more commonly called the detective bureau, consists of six detectives. Currently, the six detectives combine for over 80 years of law enforcement experience. The detectives are assigned and investigate cases such as theft, fraud, burglary, armed robbery, criminal mischief, and homicides. The entire detective bureau works together as a complete team to solve many cases.
The Investigative Division is dedicated to excellence and integrity during criminal investigations with innovative use of resources. We are committed to achieving justice and preventing losses. We will bring offenders to justice by diligently seeking the truth and promoting healing for all victims of crime.
Information provided by the community is an essential tool to the detectives when investigating cases. In past cases, community members have provided information that has resulted in the arrests and convictions of major felony crimes. The general public is always encouraged to call police with information.
