The Criminal Investigations Division is a multi-faceted unit whose investigators are available 24/7 to support public safety officers and to respond to all major crime scenes. It is the non-uniformed, operational component of the Grovetown Police Department.
While law enforcement officers most often are the first on the scene of any police event, the Criminal Investigations Division is tasked with the responsibility of conducting criminal investigations that require special expertise. Due to the complexity of some crimes, investigations cannot always be readily completed by a law enforcement officer. It is the investigator's job to trace down leads, clues, and suggestions in an effort to arrest and prosecute guilty persons. This division is dedicated to proactive investigative initiatives that provide for a safe community.
Investigators also perform surveillance, intelligence gathering, undercover operations, crime scene investigations, and other specialized duties.
