Detective Bureau

Services Division


Detective Bureau

 The Detective Bureau consists of a sergeant and six on-site detectives who investigate major and general case complaints.  The Detective Bureau is responsible for investigating felony crimes and obtaining arrest warrants and search warrants. Not all crimes are assigned for a follow-up investigation.  The Department uses a case screening process to maximize available investigative resources by concentrating investigative efforts on those cases which have a reasonable probability of being solved.  A detective will contact you if your case is assigned for further follow up. If you would like information about the status of your case, you can contact the Detective Bureau at (616)-656-6600
