The Detective Division is responsible for conducting criminal investigations for a wide variety of offenses which include Narcotics, Burglaries, Sexual Assaults, Financial and Identity Theft crimes. These incidents require the ability to spend many hours following up on leads that are beyond the availability of the Patrol Division to handle as well as preparing Search and Arrest warrants.
