This unit investigates crimes against persons such as physical assaults, domestic violence, threats, phone harassment, missing persons, stalking, rapes, murders, crimes against children, runaway / missing juveniles, and child exploitation. The majority of these cases are felonies, many of which are among the most sensitive cases investigated by law enforcement.
These types of cases are very time consuming to investigate and to prosecute. In most sex crimes, child cruelty, death investigation, assaults, and murder cases, numerous interviews and crime scene searches must be conducted. Search warrants, court orders, neighborhood canvass, and other investigative processes may also be necessary depending upon the individual case.
