Criminal Investigations Bureau
Captain Christopher Ruef, Commander
(609) 926-4051


The Criminal Investigations Bureau is responsible for conducting investigations, providing crime prevention initiatives, and ensuring the proper storage and disposition of property.

The Bureau maintains a corps of detectives that are specially trained and knowledgable in many areas of expertise. Our detectives cover a wide range of responsibilities, including arson investigation, controlled substances, fingerprint and evidence analysis, and crimes against children. In addition, the Bureau also provides initiatives dedicated to assisting in the prevention of crime and in support of quality of life issues. For example, the Juvenile Services and Community Policing Unit organizes community crime watch programs, and provides home security inspections. The School Resource Officers are uniformed patrol assigned in the Township's schools that also help develop relationships between students and Law Enforcement.

The Criminal Investigations Bureau strives to bring the best technology and methods to prevent or solve crimes that affect our residents. The Bureau is proud to use state-of-the-art equipment to detect and collect evidence, and to make these technologies deployable to any scene through the use of our modern Evidence Collection vehicle.

Also organized under the direction of the Criminal Investigations Bureau is Evidence & Property.

The Criminal Investigation Bureau commander reports to the Chief of Police.
