Although the Operations Division is tasked with investigating crimes as one of their many duties, certain types of criminal investigations require a tremendous amount of investigative techniques. When an extremely complex situation requires special investigative skills or resources beyond the scope of the Operations Division personnel, it is assigned to the Department's Investigator for follow-up investigation. The Investigator is responsible for all aspects of criminal investigations assigned to him/her until a final resolution is reached. The Investigator typically works normal “business hours” from Monday through Friday. This person is on-call during all off-duty hours to assist the Operations Division whenever requested. Typical cases handled by the Investigator are all felony cases that involve homicide/suspicious death, serious assaults resulting in injury, robbery, rape, burglary, auto theft and any other sensitive case as assigned by the Chief of Police.
