The Criminal Investigations Division is responsible for all felony investigations, civil forfeitures, intelligence information, and all evidence collected by the department. In addition to felony investigations, the division also investigates missing person incidents, domestic violence batteries, and child and elder abuse cases. The division consists of seven detectives, a corporal, a sergeant, and a lieutenant who manages the division.
The division has investigated numerous high profile criminal incidents as well as others that did not get media attention. These crimes vary in nature from frauds, thefts, sex offenses, assaults, and the most serious; homicide.
The division currently has ten unresolved homicides, of which two date back to the 1970’s. Detectives are diligently working to solve these cases and have developed new leads in some of them. We understand it’s never too late to solve a case, particularly homicides.
