Award pin given to Officers who are Investigators
Investigators at the Menasha Police Department attend multiple specialized trainings to aid in their caseloads. Investigators typically handle more complex cases that require more resources or man-power than patrol can provide. Crimes include theft complaints, fraud complaints, burglaries, robberies, sexual assaults, and crimes against life. There are an array of resources available to Investigators including a Crime Scene Unit (ambulance converted for police use), high quality cameras, and other covert observation tools to complete their case load.
The Menasha Police Department currently has two Investigator positions. Officers assigned to Investigations typically have multiple years of service (minimum of three) and have experience as an Evidence Technician or Sensitive Crimes officer. The unit is headed by the Lieutenant of Investigations. Other areas that fall under the title of Investigator and are supervised by the Lieutenant of Investigations include School Resource Officers (SRO's) and the Investigator assigned to the Lake Winnebago Metropolitan Enforcement Group (MEG Unit).
