Detectives assigned to Person Crimes are responsible for investigating all homicides, robberies, rape, assaults, arsons and domestic violence. Although capable of investigating any crime, Person Crimes detectives focus on developing an expertise in their respective field(s). This specialized training and experience have become instrumental toward solving numerous cases. In partnership with the District Attorney’s Office, Persons Crimes Detectives work to successfully prosecute criminals.
Citizen assistance, crime analysis and networking with allied agencies allows Detectives to develop suspect profiles and potentially predict their future criminal behavior. This information can assist in effective crime suppression and/or apprehension efforts.
Being the victim of any crime can be unsettling, however being the victim of a Person Crime(s) can be even more traumatic. Detectives also provide valuable information to Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence victims and work closely with victim advocacy groups.
