The Folsom Police Department Criminal Investigations Bureau (CIB) conducts thorough, complete and accurate follow up investigations for reports of criminal activity. Investigators prepare cases for the documentation of significant events and criminal prosecution. As a result of their duties, investigators work closely with the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office. Investigators receive specialized training to assist in their specific areas of investigation. Members of the CIB are tasked with the investigation of assaults, homicide, robbery, sexual assault, exploited and missing children, elder abuse, narcotics violations, alcoholic beverage violations, gang activity, burglary, larceny, auto theft, identity theft, forgery/fraud, financial crimes, vice, and high technology crimes (internet related crimes). They are also tasked with crime analysis, surveillance in areas of criminal activity, conducting probation/parole searches, the monitoring and maintenance of registered sex and drug offenders, intelligence gathering, and educational programs for Folsom's citizens and retail businesses.
The CIB also is responsible for the receiving, processing, storing and purging of property/evidence collected by officer during the course of their duties. The integrity of the chain-of-custody and the integrity of the evidence/property room are critical for the successful prosecution of criminal cases.
