CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS

The safety and well being of our Towns citizens greatly depends on the police officers, detectives, and special agents responsible for enforcing statutes, laws, and regulations. Duties vary widely by the size and type of organization but in most jurisdictions, whether on or off duty, law enforcement officers are expected to exercise their authority whenever necessary. And, regardless of where they work or what they do, police, detectives, and special agents must spend considerable time writing reports and maintaining records that are needed when legal actions require them to testify in court.

Detectives are plainclothes investigators who gather facts and collect evidence for criminal cases. Some are assigned to interagency task forces to combat specific types of crime.

They conduct interviews, examine records, observe the activities of suspects, and participate in raids or arrests. Detectives and State and Federal agents and inspectors usually specialize in one of a wide variety of violations such as homicide or fraud. They are assigned cases on a rotating basis and work on them until an arrest and conviction occurs or the case is dropped.

REGIONAL CRIME MAP

 

Highland Police are partnering with the region's leading newspaper, The Times, in their latest initiative to identify crimes where they occur.

 

The Times and its Regional Crime Maps project shares information with the public that is provided by local law enforcement. This allows anyone to see at a glance what crimes are occurring – and where.

 

In addition to Highland, law enforcement sharing information with The Times includes: East Chicago, Gary, Griffith, Michigan City, Munster, Portage, Schererville, St. John and Valparaiso.

 

Crimes are viewable by type – i.e. murder, armed robbery, auto theft – and by community, as well as by block and neighborhood within cities and towns in the region.
