Police Investigations Unit

The investigation unit is directed by Lt. R. Suceee. The unit has two divisions:

  1.  Major Crimes - non-domestic violence homicide, Felony Assaults, Burglary, Felony Theft, Forgery, Arson, Fraud, and other Felonies. This unit has five detectives that report to Sgt. J. Monson.
  2. Family Crimes - Domestic Violence Homicide, All Domestic Violence Issues, Sex Crimes, Child Abuse, Elder Abuse, Missing Persons, and Juvenile Runaways. This unit has four detectives that report to Sgt. S. Aiumu.

Detectives get initial crime reports from the patrol officer that responded. They are then responsible for any follow up that may be needed. If the crime reported is a misdemeanor, generally the patrol officer is the primary follow up person. The Special Investigation Unit focuses on drug related crimes and gang activity.
