The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) follows up on incidents referred for investigation by Patrol. Every incident referred is screened by the Detective Lieutenant or Sergeant for assignment and follow-up investigation. Detectives also open new cases stemming from other investigations and cases. The majority of cases are labor and time intensive.
CID routinely assists and works cases jointly with other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. They also work closely with Bucks County Children and Youth, Probation and Parole, and the District Attorney’s Office.
In 2019, 634 incidents were referred to CID for follow-up investigation which included:
- 8 death investigations (suicides, unattended/suspicious deaths)
- 104 economic crimes (ID theft, credit card fraud, etc.)
- 38 burglaries
- 23 missing persons
- 147 special victims cases
