The mission of the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) is to provide the highest quality criminal investigative support to the Henderson Police Department by conducting timely and thorough criminal investigations using advanced investigative techniques and forensic equipment.
WHAT WE DO
Motivated only by a search for the truth, CID detectives search out and collect all available evidence surrounding each case to exonerate the innocent and substantiate the culpability of the guilty.
As professional fact finders, CID detectives will conduct systematic and methodical investigations to determine what findings the evidence supports and will not form conclusions in advance.
CID detectives recognize their responsibilities to the community they serve and are committed to investigating all criminal allegations in an ethical and impartial manner with sensitivity toward the needs of victims and witnesses.
CID detectives are steadfast in their resolve and will mobilize all available resources to accomplish their mission, despite any obstacles, discouragement, or danger.
CID is dedicated to providing superior investigative services to the Henderson Police Department to preserve the quality of life that our Citizens and visitors enjoy.
