The Investigations Bureau investigates major crimes and pursues other investigations that are beyond the scope of regular Patrol officers. Allegations of police misconduct and complaints of excessive force are also investigated within this Bureau.
The Investigations Bureau is headed by a Deputy Chief and is comprised of 91 employees who are assigned to the four sections. Each section has investigative and evidence collection responsibilities. They include the Criminal Investigations Section, Vice and Narcotics Section, Crime Scene Investigation Section, Media Services Unit and Internal Investigations Section. An additional 65 to 80 volunteers are assigned to this Bureau. Volunteer numbers fluctuate based on needs of the department and volunteer availability.
