Investigative Services is responsible for analyzing data collected on all criminal cases. These cases are classified by the seriousness of the violation, as well as the solvability of each offense. Cases are then assigned to detectives and investigators who specialize in crimes against persons, property crimes, economic crimes and the special victims unit. They also provide background investigations for potential city employees.
Investigative Services personnel work closely with the other units in the police department on a frequent basis. Investigative Services also tracks trends in criminal activity and progressively works with our Community Action Team and Community Redevelopment Agency Police Unit to apprehend suspects. Notable trends in criminal activity are also frequently disseminated to the Crime Prevention Unit and our C.O.P. Volunteers to increase public awareness.
