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 any 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 all cases for prosecution. Division detectives are available to answer questions to public by appointment only.

Note: All initial reports of crime must go through a patrol officer first. CID detectives can only give you updates on where your previously reported case is in the investigation process.
