Criminal Investigations Division

The Criminal Investigations Division is divided into nine sections:

  1. Crimes Against Persons
  2. Crimes Against Children
  3. Crimes Against Property
  4. Domestic Violence
  5. Crime Scene Investigations
  6. Forensic Video/Criminal Analysis
  7. Financial Crimes
  8. Property and Evidence
  9. Special Services

The Division's responsibilities are: to identify and apprehend offenders; recover stolen property; gather, document and evaluate facts in reference to criminal activity; process crime scenes, recover and preserve evidence and property; and present evidence to various courts to seek a successful prosecution of the offender(s).

All criminal reports made to the Henry County Police Department are sent to the Criminal Investigations Division for assessment. The reports are reviewed for facts and information which would lead detectives to the identity of a suspect.

Case Assignment

Solvability factors are used to determine if a case is assigned. Some of these factors are; clear descriptions that will identify the perpetrator(s), license tag information, and direct knowledge of who committed the crime, physical evidence that can identify the perpetrator(s) or witnesses who are able to identify the perpetrator(s). There may be other factors that will also be used to determine assignment.

Citizens who are victims of crimes are encouraged to contact the Criminal Investigations Division if they become aware of additional information that was not given to the officer at the time of the report. Due to the overwhelming number of reports, cases are only assigned if there is sufficient information or evidence to justify the expenditure of manpower on an investigation.

When a case is assigned, the detective will contact the victim within 48 hours of receiving the assignment. During the course of the investigation, the detective will maintain contact with the victim and update them on the progress of the case. When a final resolution is reached, the detective will contact the victim and advise them of the final disposition. In those instances where no information was developed for prosecution, the case will be considered inactive. Should new information be developed, the case can be re-activated for additional investigation.
