The Investigations Unit is comprised of detectives that specialize in the investigation of serious crimes including, but not limited to:

  • Homicide
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Sexual Assault
  • Child Abuse
  • Domestic Violence

We also supervise and monitor the registered sex offenders within Butte County.

The unit is divided into a General Felony Crimes unit, a Special Victims Unit, and a Gang Crimes unit. The mission of the unit is to vigorously, thoroughly, and competently conduct criminal investigations with the goal of determining the facts of the case and, when appropriate, arresting offenders and achieving successful prosecutions and convictions. Our philosophy includes; we will "leave no stone unturned," and "travel to ends of the earth," in our quest to solve murders and bring perpetrators to justice.
