Criminal Investigations

The Criminal Investigations Division includes Crimes Against Persons and Property, Narcotics Unit, Crime Analysis Unit, Criminalist Unit, and a Crime Victim Advocate.
Child Abuse
The Criminal Investigations Division participates in the Child Abuse Task Force by funding a child abuse investigator who works out of the Collin County Children’s Advocacy Center in Plano. Suspected child abuse should be reported to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services at 800-252-5400. This toll free hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you feel a situation is a life-threatening emergency, please call 911. The Texas DFPS works with local agencies to investigate reports of alleged abuse.

To accomplish this, the Crime Victim Advocate can assist with Crime Victim's Compensation paperwork, attend court with victims, make referral for crisis counseling and other social services. The Crime Victim Advocate works closely with investigators to help the victim navigate the criminal justice system.
