Major Crimes/General Investigations
The Agents and Analysts of the CBI Investigations Section provide a full range of criminal investigative assistance to local law enforcement. The types of crimes investigated often include: homicide, arson, officer involved uses of force, sexual assault, burglary, theft, public corruption, and others. The CBI can respond only at the specific request of a police department, sheriff's' office or district attorneys' office. Additionally, the CBI performs investigations of suspected criminal activity when directed by the Governor and has the statutory authority to initiate investigations of organized crime that transcend local jurisdictional boundaries as well as the investigation and apprehension of fugitives.
