About Cold Case Homicide Detectives

Homicide Cold Case investigation is conducted by ​one sergeant and five detectives  who work diligently to review every homicide case to: (a) determine the true status of the case, and (b) determine if new fingerprint, ballistics or DNA technology can be applied to the unsolved cases.

As they proceed through this review process, detectives compute a solvability factor for the case. The solvability factors help them determine which cases to focus on once the initial reviews are completed.

Detectives also field calls daily that present new information or leads on cases. When new information comes in, they immediately work the leads as far as the information takes them.  

Cold Case Detectives are committed to the highest level of professionalism and work​ diligently to bring each case to a successful resolution. Every Cold Case Homicide is important to us.   

The detectives assigned to the Homicide Cold Case Unit never forget each victim was loved and left families and friends behind.  We will always work tirelessly to bring each case to resolution.
