Criminal Investigation Unit
Falfurrias Police Department | Criminal Investigation Division
The Criminal Investigation Division (C.I.D.) is the investigative arm of the police department. C.I.D. handles: the follow-up investigations of criminal offenses and internal investigations; the development of information contributing to offense prevention; the management of physical evidence and property; and victim assistance.
The primary functions of the Criminal Investigation Division are: to review and investigate reports of felony and misdemeanor criminal acts; identify suspects, both adult and juvenile; and prepare cases for prosecution with the District Attorney’s Office. Investigative work is reactive from reports with the identification, arrest and prosecution of suspects and also proactive through the prevention of criminal acts in their identification of suspects.
The Investigation Division also provides support to victims of crimes during the course of an investigation. The crime victims and the community both benefit from the prosecution and punishment of criminals. Every attempt is made to prioritize an investigator’s work so that cases involving injured persons, threats to personal safety and significant property loss receive the most immediate attention. The Investigations Division has at least two officers designated as being “on call” at all times, though all investigators can be called in to work major crime scenes as needed. The investigators are available during normal business hours.
