Detective Bureau

The Detective Bureau primarily responsible for conducting all follow up investigations of reported incidents occurring within the township limits. The detectives are assigned to handle matters relating to adult offenders as well as an additional detective handling juvenile matters.

Any crimes reported, which may range anywhere from petty thefts to homicide, are reviewed by the Detective Bureau supervisor and assigned to a detective for follow up based on several solvability factors with priority given to more serious offenses.

Our detectives strive to maintain a relationship with all members of the department as valuable sources of information, which may be necessary to complete investigations. They also work closely with numerous municipal, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies when appropriate.

In addition, the detectives encourage the sharing of information with members of the public. Many investigations are initiated as well as solved through this type of cooperative effort. Detectives are typically available Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 11:00pm. At all other times, detectives are available through an “on-call” status to respond as needed.
