INVESTIGATIONS



The Investigations Division is responsible for conducting a thorough investigation after a patrol officer exhausts all possibilities of a crime being solved quickly. Investigators are assigned cases on a daily basis. The investigator, with the patrol officer’s information, will follow up with witness interviews, evidence gathering, suspect information, etc. to assure the case is investigated in its entirety.

The Investigations Division is comprised of one lieutenant, one sergeant, one corporal, nine investigators, one family violence investigator, one office assistant, two property room/evidence managers, and three crime scene technicians. The Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) is also under the supervision of this section. The lieutenant and five investigators work Monday through Thursday, 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. The sergeant and five investigators work Tuesday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the corporal works Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is an investigator on call 24 hours a day. This investigator is called when the patrol supervisor feels that it is vital to the investigation. The office assistant works Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Crime Scene/Evidence & Property

The crime scene technicians are under the supervision of the Investigations Division. Their primary duties include the recovery and preservation of evidence. When the technicians are called to a scene they are responsible for photographing the area, collecting evidence, taking measurements for diagrams and documenting evidence recovery locations if necessary, and lifting fingerprints. They maintain custody of the evidence/property collected by the police department.
