The Investigations Bureau conducts investigations that are brought to the attention of the bureau through patrol officers' case reports and intelligence reports.  The Investigations Bureau is also responsible for conducting background investigations for firearms permits, ABC licensing, and employment.  The Investigations Bureau is comprised of 1 Detective Sergeant (supervisor), 4 Detectives, and 1 Evidence Clerk.  The Evidence/Property Management function is overseen by DSgt. Ent but the day-to-day is handled by a Evidence Control Officer, Keith Holler.  Audits are conducted to ensure items are managed and stored appropriately.

Their investigation strategy is simple; bring all reasonably available and appropriate resources to bear to conduct a thorough investigation to determine: who, what, where, when, why and how.   Investigations, particularly those of a criminal nature that have an identified victim, will be conducted with a victim-centered approach.  Results of investigations will be made available to appropriate authorized stakeholders.
