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 Criminal Investigations Division consists of eight detectives, a corporal, a sergeant, and a captain who manages the division.


This 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; homicides.

The division has various crimes that are currently unsolved, so we always welcome any assistance from the community in helping us solve these cases.
