"to be impartial and diligent in our search for the facts"


The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) of the Oak Ridge Police Department consists of specially trained officers (Detectives) who are generally assigned to investigate alleged, specific crimes. Those crimes are not limited to: murder, rape, robbery, burglaries and major thefts (over $5,000.00).

By employing special tactics and cooperative efforts with outside agencies, the division increases resources for all major crimes to gather further leads and information in an effort to make timely arrests. The CID maintains constructive working partnerships with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), United States District Attorney General’s Office and other state and local agencies, as well as other City departments.

As well as investigating and monitoring criminal activity, the Criminal Investigations Division is also called upon to conduct Internal Investigations of our own officers to maintain public confidence of our agency, therefore adding to open communications and transparency.
