Criminal Investigations

Division Responsibilities & Services


The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) is one of the many crucial yet rarely seen divisions of the Murphy Police Department. As the title suggest, CID is tasked with the thorough yet timely investigation of crimes committed within the city limits of Murphy. In addition to performing crime scene investigations, CID also handles the transfer of evidence to external labs for processing as well as prepping cases for prosecution. Detectives are available to answer questions to the public by appointment only.

Note: All initial reports of crime must go through a patrol officer first.  Case updates can be obtained by contacting the assigned detective.
