The "Mission of the Investigations Division" is to identify, document and collect all evidence and information at crime scenes for identifying, apprehending and convicting the guilty and to exonerate the innocent.
The St. George Police Department Investigations Division consists of one Captain, one Lieutenant, three Sergeants, and sixteen Detectives. Additionally, there are seven civilian employees. These detectives are experienced and highly trained investigators whose sole job is to investigate and solve a wide range of crimes. They have specialized knowledge, skills and resources enabling them to solve cases such as forgeries, frauds, thefts, robberies, rapes, drug activity, gang crimes, sex crimes, child and adult abuse, homicide and other suspicious deaths. Detectives are trained in processing for fingerprints, photography and all aspects of crime scene investigation.
In many cases, the patrol officer who took the initial report will be able to investigate this case and bring it to a resolution. If the offense is serious or the officer was unable to complete the case during their shift, it may be assigned to a detective for follow up. In some cases, there may not be enough evidence to conclusively point to a suspect. In all cases, the St. George Police Department Investigations Division is here to serve the citizens our community.
