A MISSION OF COMPASSIONATE CARE
The Criminal Investigation Division also provides support to victims of crimes during the course of an investigation.
The mission of Henderson Police Department Crime Victim Services is to assist victims of crime by:
- Providing support, education, information, and referrals as they regain control of their lives.
- To advocate safety, healing, justice, and restitution.
- To increase awareness about violent crime victimization and its impact on our lives and the City of Henderson.
Crime victims and the community both benefit from the prosecution and punishment of criminals. Every attempt is made to prioritize an investigator's work so that cases involving injured persons, threats to personal safety and significant property loss receive the most immediate attention.
The Investigation Division has at least one detective designated as being 'on call' at all times, though any detective may be called to work major crime scenes as needed. Henderson detectives are available during normal business hours.
