The Investigations Division is made up of one Sergeant, three investigators, and an Evidence Technician. One of those investigators is assigned to standard investigations, while another
is assigned to the multi-jurisdictional Cannon River Drug & Violent Offender Task Force and one is a School Resource Officer.
As its name applies, the Investigations Division investigates crimes that occur within the City of Northfield. These crimes range for simple thefts to more complex assaults and crimes against persons. As fraud crimes are becoming more and more frequent, the investigators continually update their training to keep pace with technology.
The School Resource Officer (SRO) is assigned to the Northfield Public Schools and handles most incidents that occur on school grounds. The SRO also is a DARE instructor and coordinates activities with the community and students.
The Evidence Technician assists at crime scenes; records and stores all digital, audio, photographic evidence and physical property.
