Investigations

Investigators

Investigators are plainclothes officers who gather facts and collect evidence for criminal cases. Some are assigned to inter-agency task forces to combat specific types of crime. 

Their duties include:

  •  Conducting interviews
  •  Examining records
  •  Observing the activities of suspects
  •  Participating in raids or arrests

Detectives and State and Federal agents and inspectors usually specialize in one of a wide variety of violations such as homicide or fraud. They are assigned cases on a rotating basis and work on them until an arrest and conviction occurs or the case is dropped.
