The Detective Bureau’s abilities and resources complement the Patrol Division to further the pursuit and apprehension of criminal violators. The Detective Bureau ensures the thorough handling of all investigations of magnitude or criminal investigations requiring the coordination of multiple investigative bodies at the local, county, state, and federal levels.

Detectives have the opportunity to receive exposure to a multitude of specialized training, including interview techniques, crime scene preservation and processing, arson investigation, homicide investigation, narcotics distribution investigation and trends, fraud and theft investigation and trends, modern technology-based investigation methodology, and dark web/computer crime trends.

Networking and interagency cooperation is paramount for case closure and effective, efficient investigative work. Our detectives regularly attend meetings with the Sussex County Detectives Association to stay current on local criminal activity and provide the opportunity to give and receive what could be vital information about recent open cases for our agency and others.
