Criminal Investigation Division
CID FingerprintThe goals of the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) are to investigate criminal offenses, 
prepare cases for prosecution and reduce crime.  Criminal offenses that require follow-ups are assigned to detectives. A substantial amount of these cases are cleared by means such as arrest and filing with the District and County Attorneys. Detectives work a variety of crimes from misdemeanors to capital felonies. The criteria and solvability factors that determine whether a case may be assigned for follow-up investigation include, but are not limited to, the nature of the crime, suspect information, property identification, witness information and the presence of physical evidence.
