The Pevely Police Department currently has one detective assigned to the Criminal Investigations Bureau. The Bureau completes all criminal investigations which are initiated by the Patrol Division or self-initiated narcotics operations in cooperation with the Patrol Division. The Bureau then submits the completed investigations which have sufficient elements to the City or County Prosecutor’s Office for review and possible filing of criminal charges against suspects. The Prosecutor’s Office decides whether charges will be filed against a suspect. If charges are filed, cases proceed through the court process.
The Criminal Investigations Bureau is a pro-active element of the Police Department, interacting with other agencies’ investigative bureaus and often help coordinate such things as arrest and search warrants. The Investigations Bureau has the common goal of improving the quality of life in the community by concentrating on those people in society who commit crime.
Detective Corporal, Brian Benjamin, DSN-780
