The Detectives Division supports the Patrol Division by conducting investigations of reported criminal activity in the City of Rifle. An investigation may include conducting interviews with victims, witnesses and suspects, analyzing information for validity, reliability, and accuracy; and compiling a factual and comprehensive case to be presented in court. Detectives may also respond to and process major crime scenes to insure that the highest level of investigation and evidence collection methods are achieved.

Detectives will frequently complete processing of physical evidence and prepare evidence for submission to the Colorado Bureau of Investigations.
