Detective Division


The Detectives Division conducts criminal follow-up investigations and initiates investigations involving vice, drugs, gangs, cyber crime, organized crime and other criminal activities and threats.

Working independently and with others in the department, detectives employ investigative techniques and strategies to identify suspects and make arrests. They frequently utilize crime analysts who are equipped with modern technology that allows them to closely monitor criminal activity for early signs of crime patterns and trends.

Centralized units include:

A detective sergeant is assigned to each police district to supervise the investigations performed by detectives working there. District detectives handle a broad spectrum of criminal cases including such major crimes as assaults, burglaries, larcenies, and robberies occurring in their geographic areas. In addition district detectives work closely with personnel from Detectives Division’s centralized units, with other divisions of the Raleigh Police Department, and with other law enforcement agencies.
