The division is primarily responsible for investigating any offense that occurs within the Harrisonville city limits. During the investigative process, the investigators interact with various agencies on the municipal, state, and federal level.
Crime Scene & Evidence
Investigators are also responsible for processing crime scenes, including the preservation, collection, and transportation of evidence to the crime lab, and the application for warrants through the Cass County Prosecuting Attorney's Office.
Detectives also meet regularly with other agencies to exchange information about area crime problems and belong to various associations to enhance the exchange of information and discussion of investigative techniques.
Support & Training
The detectives are members of the Major Case Squad or Metro Squad, which response at the request of other agencies to investigate homicides. Each year, the bureau offers training to area banks, large businesses, liquor license holders, and other merchants as needed.
