We work hard to help the community to maintain a high quality of life and encourage you to read the information we have gathered.

The detectives perform a critical role in determining what has occurred and also in identifying the responsible person(s). This is accomplished by carefully documenting all conditions of a crime scene, recognizing all relevant physical evidence, conducting interviews and additional research. The ability to recognize and properly collect evidence is often times critical to both solving crimes and prosecuting violent criminals.

All investigators are trained in Forensics, Crime Scene Processing and Crime Scene Preservation.

Access to Investigators

All Investigators are on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for any serious or violent crime.
