Criminal Investigations

Division Organization & Responsibilities
The Milford Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division currently consists of three detectives with specialized training in the investigation of Property Crimes (burglary), Financial Crimes, and Crimes against Persons.  The Criminal Investigations Division handles several hundred cases each year, ranging from burglaries and serious felony-level assaults to forgeries and frauds. The Division also investigates all homicides, sexual assaults, and child abuse within the city limits.  The Division monitors the activities of local pawn shops and handles Megan’s Law (Sex Offender) verifications and notifications within the city limits.

Detectives are trained as Evidence Technicians, but they are assisted by a civilian Crime Scene Investigator, who is part of the Evidence Unit.
