Detective Bureau :
We maintain a Detective Bureau which has the primary responsibility to conduct follow-up investigations of all criminal matters. Detectives assigned to this division develop and maintain sources of intelligence information pertaining to criminal activity. Based on the information they gather, they also initiate investigations. Detectives review all criminal activity reported within the Borough and correlate information as it may pertain to open investigations.
The Detective Bureau works closely with neighboring police agencies as well as county, state and federal law enforcement agencies. When necessary, they apply for and execute search warrants, maintain fingerprint and photograph files and prepare cases for prosecution. The detectives are also responsible for storing and securing evidence relating to investigations and found property. Additionally, they perform other administrative tasks such as police applicant background checks, ABC license investigations, firearms applications processing and maintenance of Megan's Law files.
In order for us to develop a team environment we seek the input from our general public. Your tips can lead to the resolution of problem areas, which we may not be familiar with. Should you have a crime tip please click on the link below and add your information.
