Investigations

InvestigationsWe catch the bad guys. When criminals prey on our residents, it’s our job to find them, hold them accountable and stop them from doing it again. It’s only possible with a team of dedicated people from Detectives to Crime Scene Investigators in the Crime Lab and  Evidence and Property .

Detectives in Major Crimes investigate crimes from assaults to financial fraud to internet crimes against children. Their investigations make up the majority of cases adjudicated in Douglas County.

Detectives who work in the Special Investigations Section specialize in tracking and catching criminals who cross jurisdictional borders, hurt children, traffic illegal drugs, property crime and auto theft and more.

If you are the victim of a crime, our Victim Advocates respond to victims of crimes and family survivors in cases of violent and/or sudden death. Advocates address emotional issues, confusion and trauma, and also make long-term referrals to help victims get on the path of recovery.

Our Mission:

To effectively, ethically and professionally investigate serious criminal complaints and to focus on excellence in the preparation of those cases referred to the district attorney for prosecution.
