The basic purpose of the Criminal Investigations Division (CID) is to arrest and convict perpetrators. An investigator must analyze and integrate the information attained to continue an investigation. To reach their objectives, the investigator seeks the aid of experts in specialized fields, technicians, forensic specialists, etc.., and couples this with their training to bring a case to a successful conclusion. The investigator must be complete in every detail to assure a successful prosecution and conviction when presented in court.
