The Homicide Unit specializes in the investigation of homicides, suspicious unattended deaths wherein the cause of death is not readily apparent, police-involved shootings, and certain other major crimes involving violence against persons. The Unit collaborates with local police agencies, as well as State and Federal law enforcement agencies to investigate crimes and bring charges against those responsible.
The duties performed by members of this unit include conducting exhaustive interviews of witnesses and suspects, locating, identifying and preserving evidence, reconstructing crimes based on eyewitness reports and forensic evidence which can help determine motive, method and intent, preparing and executing search warrants, apprehending perpetrators and ultimately providing courtroom testimony.
As there is no statute of limitations on Murder, the members of the Major Crimes Unit also regularly review and re-investigate previously unsolved cold case files.
