The Detective Division is headed by the Detective Division Commander Capt. Paul Forrester.
While primary responsibility for the investigation of most crimes rest with the patrol officer in which whose beat the crime occurred, officers seldom have the time to become involved in complex and/or lengthy investigations. In these cases, assistance and follow-up are provided by detective personnel, who also have primary responsibility for the investigation of major crimes, such as homicide and rape. The Detective Division is also responsible for the investigation of vice and organized crime as well as criminal intelligence collection and dissemination.
