Captain Tony Pendergrass commands the Support Operations Division. The Division is comprised of the Criminal Investigations Section and the Narcotics/Vice Section. The Division conducts criminal follow-up investigations and initiates investigations involving vice, drugs, gangs, cyber crime, organized crime and other criminal activities and threats. Detectives handle a broad spectrum of criminal cases including such major crimes as homicide, assaults, burglaries, larcenies, and robberies occurring in the City. In addition detectives work closely with personnel from other law enforcement agencies.
Working independently and with others in the department, detectives employ investigative techniques and strategies to identify suspects and make arrests. They frequently utilize crime analysts who are equipped with modern technology that allows them to closely monitor criminal activity for early signs of crime patterns and trends.
A detective sergeant supervises each section.
