Investigations

The Investigations Division is comprised of several sections and units whose primary responsibility is to investigate crimes and prepare cases for prosecution by the county Prosecutor. Detectives are usually assigned cases that originate from patrol officers in the field. Patrol officers prepare preliminary reports that are assigned to detectives for more in-depth follow-up. Detectives can also generate investigations from their own observations or information received from the public.

Deputy Chief Henry White commands the Investigations Division of the Atlantic City Police Department. This includes Criminal Investigations, the Juvenile Section, Pawn Investigations, Major Crimes, and the Forensic Section.

Criminal Investigations Section

The Criminal Investigations Section consists of Detectives who investigate crimes in order to provide information that will cause a successful prosecution of perpetrators of criminal offenses through quality investigations. Detectives also assist in community problem solving through timely identification of emerging crime patterns and by developing crime prevention initiatives in conjunction with other units within the police department.
