We 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.
Both commissioned and non-commissioned personnel assigned to Major Crimes are carefully selected, specially trained, and highly skilled to investigate murders, attempted murders, felony assaults, felony and misdemeanor domestic violence cases, cold cases, sexual assault cases perpetrated against adults and children, financial fraud cases as well as internet crimes against children.
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, 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, trauma, and also make long-term referrals to help victims get on the path of recovery.
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.
