The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) is the investigative branch of the police department
and is part of the Operations Bureau, performing
all criminal investigations
and working closely with the Erath County Attorney's Office and Erath County District Attorney's Office to
prosecute criminal cases.
CID is supervised by one Lieutenant and has six Investigators assigned to
the division. Investigators assigned to the division are
police officers who have been specially selected and trained to investigate criminal offenses.
Once a case is received by the Criminal Investigations Division, it is assigned to one of four investigative groups: Crimes Against
Persons, Property Crimes, Financial Crimes or Narcotics.
Cases are assigned based on the offense type and the investigative focus required by the investigators.
The Criminal Investigations Division's office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and can be contacted directly at
254-918-1200 X 4.
