Adult Investigations Unit
The Adult Investigations Unit investigates major crimes such as murder, robberies, sexual assaults, financial and other crimes involving adult offenders. Detectives conduct investigations and follow-up relating to criminal incidents involving adult offenders. Not all cases are assigned to a detective; it is important to note that their involvement in a case will depend upon solvability factors, meaning what information is available for detectives to follow-up on in an effort to resolve the case.
Detectives are highly trained in investigative techniques and provide a high level of expertise to the cases they are involved with.
Financial crimes are one of the fastest growing crime trends in the country; as such, the department has detectives specifically trained to investigate financial crimes that have occurred within the city of Elgin. View more information about financial crime investigations.
