Criminal Investigators, also known as detectives, perform a variety of law enforcement duties. Investigating crime scenes, processing and protecting evidence, interviewing witnesses and suspects and documenting cases make up a large part of the duties of a detective. Detectives use the latest technology to investigate criminal cases.
Additionally, detectives serve search warrants, prepare criminal cases for court and testify in courtroom proceedings.
