personally respond to all major crime scenes. Investigators also
perform such duties as surveillance of individuals and places,

investigations which require special expertise, or which because of
their complexity or geographical considerations do not lend
themselves readily to completion by Patrol Officers.

Investigation, the FBI and other city, county, state, and federal
law enforcement agencies. To accomplish this task, investigators'
must maintain a network with other agencies to share information,
intelligence and resources.

information we share is developed from tips from citizens like you.

criminal activity in your neighborhood you can call the Jacksonville
Police Department twenty four hours a day, or email that information
to the investigators with as much detailed information as you have.
