Each Detective is also assigned to be the contact for elementary schools and other schools in the community. These Detectives usually handle most crime that involves students at the schools.
The Detectives assigned to the schools foster a positive environment for students and staff, and deal with law enforcement matters if they come up at each school. The Detectives also keep track of any missing students from the schools. The Detectives that are assigned are not involved with school policy violations or discipline issues.
These Detectives are also involved with a variety of educational presentations including driving and internet safety.
