General Investigations Unit
The General Investigations Unit is comprised of highly trained police officers and civilian employees who are committed to providing professional service to the community of Tracy by conducting thorough investigations in order to ensure a successful prosecution. The unit works closely with other county, state, and federal organizations as well as the San Joaquin County District Attorney’s office to obtain and secure criminal complaints and convictions.
The primary function of the General Investigations Unit is to provide follow-up to those cases which warrant investigation beyond what can be provided by patrol personnel. Often times these cases require additional technical skills and extensive follow-up. Examples of such crimes include homicides, robberies, gang related crimes and intelligence, sex offenses, financial crimes, and burglaries.
The General Investigations Unit is comprised of 1 Sergeant, 8 Detectives, and 1 Administrative Assistant.
