Detective Bureau

The Detective Bureau is a specialized investigative unit, which works in conjunction with Uniformed Services on unresolved field investigations and specialized criminal investigations. Detectives conduct complex criminal investigations by gathering all available information including detailed interviewing of victim(s), witnesses, and potential suspect(s), collecting and preserving evidence, processing crime scenes, conducting surveillance, and obtaining search warrants. Detectives also evaluate crime trends and patterns using modern police technology in their efforts to prevent or complete a criminal investigation.

Detectives work Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with a rotating on-call status every week.
