Criminal Investigations Division

Captain Shannon Trump

The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) is staffed by a captain, a lieutenant, two sergeants, eight detectives and an administrative assistant.

Reports taken by police officers in the patrol division are reviewed by CID supervisors and are assigned to detectives based on several criteria.  Detectives often work on several cases at once as cases often progress at different speeds.  Cases frequently require information from private businesses, outside agencies, locating witnesses or suspects, lab analysis, or court orders.  All cases are worked using a records management system that keeps track of all cases assigned to detectives and the updates to those cases to make sure no case falls through the cracks. 

While detectives work on cases of all types, they often specialize in a particular type of crime and often maintain contacts in that area that allows them to work with other agencies and businesses on a regular basis.  Examples of specialized areas are burglaries, auto thefts, thefts from vehicles, sexual assaults, financial crimes, missing persons and computer crimes. 

The criminal investigations division is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. however detectives typically work ten hours a day, four days a week.  With overlapping and rotating days off, this allows detectives to be available fifty hours a week.  When the criminal investigations division is closed a detective is on call and available to respond to a serious incident. 

The Noblesville Police Department property room is in the public safety building in a reinforced and secured portion of the building.  Entry to the property room is tightly restricted to only those who work in the property room on a regular basis.   If officers from the Noblesville Police Department encounter property or evidence during their shift, it’s submitted to the property room.  The availability of the property is dependent on several factors but if you think it’s available to be picked up, please call (317) 776-6371 to schedule an appointment to pick up your property.  You can also complete this on-line form and the property room manager will contact you.  Walk-in appointments are rarely available because of the strict control of the property room and an appointment is highly recommended.

The crime scene investigation unit consists of two crime scene investigators as well as several field evidence technicians.  Crime scene investigators are called to all major crime scenes to document, examine and collect evidence from the scene.  Crime scene investigators receive training in several different areas including photography, fingerprinting, blood spatter analysis, computer forensics, cell phone forensics, etc.  Field evidence technicians are patrol officers who are trained in crime scene investigation techniques.
