Additional tasks include: Subpoena Service, Photo Lab Duties and Court Liaison. An assigned uniform patrol officer will conduct an initial investigation, write a report on the crime circumstances, pertinent facts, witness statements and list physical evidence at the scene. Cases are prioritized for investigative follow-up based on the severity and nature of the crime and the presence or absence of workable leads. Current investigative skills, techniques and technical resources are used to identify, locate and apprehend criminal suspects, recover stolen property and provide prosecutors with criminal cases that will culminate in successful prosecutions.
