Detective Division


Detectives from our Investigative Division become involved in cases that require additional or timely follow up. Generally, these are the more serious cases.

Detectives also respond for cases where crime scenes need to be processed.

Our Detective Division consists of highly trained investigators.  While larger agencies can afford to have units of detectives specialized in different crimes, the detectives in our division have to be skilled in all areas.

They attend schools and seminars each year to keep abreast on the latest investigative techniques on everything from lifting fingerprints to collecting specimens for DNA analysis.

As with most law enforcement agencies, our detectives carry a heavy caseload. In spite of this, they review all cases that come across their desks.  

The tools of our detective bureau range from camera and surveillance equipment to specialized clothing allowing entry into hazardous crime scenes. We also trade back and forth equipment from other law enforcement agencies wherever possible to ease the burden on the local taxpayers.  

However, gadgets alone will not solve crimes. All the equipment in the world will not make any municipality safer. It takes detectives who know the town, know the people, and know their job. We are proud of the fact that the detectives from the Freehold Borough Police Department excel in all of these areas.
