The Criminal Investigations Division conducts follow-up investigation on all major crimes reported in the Village. The personnel within the division receive training above and beyond that of a normal patrol officer. This training increases their proficiency in:
Conducting interviews of witnesses and victims
Recovering stolen property
Bringing cases to completion
Evidence & Case Work
Division personnel work closely with Crime Scene Unit technicians, to develop and utilize evidence obtained from crime scenes to identify suspects and to construct a case. This case is then presented to the State Attorney's Office for prosecution of those involved in the crime.
