Criminal Investigations Division

Management & Specialization

The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) is commanded by Captain James Harris. This Division includes the investigation of personal, property, and drug crimes. This specialization allows detectives to develop expertise that improves our ability to investigate and ultimately have offenders charged in criminal court.

Investigation Procedures

Once a police report is taken by an officer, CID is called into action. Each case is reviewed and a determination is made for possible investigative leads. Members of CID conduct interviews and lawful searches during the investigation to gather information and evidence that is vital in reconstructing the occurrence or circumstances of the crime. The duties of a Detective primarily include: 

  • Apprehension of criminal offenders
  • Presentation of evidence in court
  • Recovery of stolen property
