The Major Crimes Investigations Division includes two major crimes units, a Crime Analysis Detective, and a School Resource Officer.
The Major Crimes detectives' primary duty is to conduct secondary investigations for felony crimes. Examples include homicides, robberies, sexual assault, arsons, prostitution, and identity theft. They also investigate Child Protective Services referrals, Adult Protective Services referrals, and coordinate the registered sex offender notification and monitoring program.
The Crime Analysis Detective analyzes crime trends and provides timely information that assists Department members and the community with targeted enforcement and strategy development.
The School Resource Officer serves the Bothell High School. The SRO strives to bridge gaps between police officers and young people, helping to increase positive attitudes toward law enforcement. During the summer months, the officer is busy preparing for the next school year, working on special projects, and assisting with regular Patrol duties. The SRO program provides:
Visible, active law enforcement on the high school campus
Classroom resources for instruction in law enforcement related education, violence diffusion, safety programs, and alcohol and drug prevention.
A team approach with the officer, faculty and administration working together to solve problems in the school community.
