CID conducts inquiries into major felony offenses including: homicide, suicide, kidnapping, rape, sexual assault, burglary, robbery, theft, fraud, internet crimes, arson and crimes against children and the elderly. In addition, some other cases, including misdemeanor cases, are assigned to investigators based upon department protocol. An example would be a missing / endangered person.
CID and SCU also assist the Patrol, Community Programs, and Administrative divisions by providing expertise, equipment and manpower at the scene of major crimes, accidents and other incidents of a significant nature and by teaching classes to officers, civilian personnel and members of the Citizen and Teen Police Academies.
CID houses the Department's Domestic Violence officer, Sgt. Jason McCready, who reviews all domestic violence incidents that occur in the city to ensure the safety of the victim. Victims of domestic violence are encouraged to contact Sgt. McCready for assistance with their cases such as obtaining an order of protection or for referral to other victim services organizations.
