Detective Bureau

The Detectives' primary responsibility is to conduct follow-up investigations of all criminal matters. Detectives assigned to this division develop and maintain sources of intelligence information pertaining to criminal activity. They review all criminal investigations and a Detective is assigned to follow-up on a case as required.
 
They work closely with neighboring police agencies as well as county, state and federal law enforcement agencies. When necessary, they apply for and execute search warrants, they maintain fingerprint and photograph files and they prepare cases for prosecution. The Detectives are also responsible for storing and securing evidence relating to investigations and found property. Additionally, they perform other administrative tasks such as police applicant background checks, ABC license investigations, firearms applications processing and maintenance of Megan's Law files.

One Detective is designated as the Juvenile Officer/School Resource Officer and handles investigations involving juveniles and processing complaints against them. The Juvenile Detective also coordinates the DARE program and acts as a liaison to the schools.
