The Lansing Police Departments Criminal Investigations Divisionís (CID) mission is to effectively and efficiently investigate
The Criminal Investigations Division of the Lansing Police Department consists of both Detectives and Tactical Officers. These divisions are supervised by Detective Lieutenant Steve Roberts and Detective Sergeant Scott Bailey.
There are currently five detectives in the Investigations
Division. Detectives are primarily responsible for criminal and juvenile investigations, criminal intelligence, vice and organized
crime. Detectives also conduct background investigations on potential employees. All Detectives are cross trained as certified
Juvenile Officers. One Detective also serves as our School Resource Officer (SRO). This detective handles most police
matters as it relates to the schools and acts as a liason between the Lansing Police Department and the schools within the
Tactical Officers are responsible for addressing specifically assigned community problem issues. Some responsibilities include, but are not limited to: drug interdiction, traffic enforcement, gangs, criminal offenses, surveillance operations, developing informants, preparation and execution of search warrants.
The Lansing Police Departmentís Investigations Division also belongs to the South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force and the South Suburban Emergency Response Team. The division also has one officer that is a Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) participant.
CID supervisor(s) will review and determine the need for investigative follow-up through case screening. Screening will be based upon solvability factors, manpower, resources, and the probability of successful case resolution.
CID supervisors are also responsible for media relations, property and evidence, and internal affairs.
Personal property taken as a result of an arrest and being held at the Lansing Police Department can be released at any time by contacting the on-duty Shift Commander.
Evidence or other property held by the Lansing Police Department will be released (Monday through Friday, excluding holidays) between the hours of 8:00 am and 3:00 pm by contacting one of the CID Supervisors. The release of property after hours will require making prior arrangements with a CID Supervisor.
