The Criminal Investigations Division is comprised of 13 detectives, two analysts and supervised by Detective Sergeants Joshua Kloster and Christopher Morales. The unit is charged with investigating all felony cases which include person(s) and property crimes such as assaults, battery, robberies, burglary, grand thefts and vandalisms. In addition to conducting their own investigations, the unit also works closely with investigators assigned to the Special Victims Unit, Forensic Science Unit (Crime Scene), as well as the Narcotics Unit.
The investigators assigned to the Criminal Investigations Division are specially trained and have years of law enforcement experience. Through their training and experience, the detectives within the unit are able to effectively investigate all cases from the initial complaint through the arrest process, and then work closely with the State Attorney’s Office during the prosecution phase.
The detectives in the Criminal Investigations Division are committed to providing the highest level of service in an effort to keep Martin County and its citizens safe.
