What We Do
The responsibility of the Crimes Against Persons section is to investigate all armed robberies, common law robberies, assaults, rapes, suicides, sudden deaths and homicides.
The mission of the unit is to identify and apprehend all suspects and to ensure the integrity of the investigation for any further prosecution.
The Crimes Against Person section is comprised of one sergeant and five detectives.
They are responsible for the investigation of the case and for coordinating within the District Attorney's office for prosecution of the cases. It is also their job to keep in contact with victims to keep them informed about their pending cases.
If you need to contact one of our detectives about your case or any other case then you should call 910.343.3609.
There may be an occasion where you are a victim. There are resources that you have and may not be aware that can help you. Also, please ask your investigator what kind of services you may be entitled to receive.
If the offender/suspect contacts you in any way, and threatens or otherwise intimidates you, immediately call 911 and the investigator assigned to your case. For further information on victim/witness assistance call 910.343.3609, 24-hours a day, seven-days a week.
