The Criminal Investigations Division oversees all long term, latent investigations allowing uniform patrol officers to focus on day-to-day operations.  It is comprised of the Major Crimes Bureau, the Strategic Investigations Bureau, and the Communications Bureau.

The Major Crimes Bureau investigates Homicides, Sex Crimes, Child Abuse, Domestic Violence, and Fugative Apprehension.  The bureau also handles forensic investigations.

The Strategic Investigations Bureau is responsible for  Narcotic and Gang Enforcement, Undercover Operations, and Firearm Investigations.

The Communications Bureau is central to the police function.  Every call for police service must be received, recorded, dispatched and concluded by this area.  The bureau is the vital link between citizens requiring police services, and the officers who respond to the event.
