Criminal Investigations Division

The Lyndhurst Police Department Criminal Investigations Division, often referred to as “CID” or “The Detective Bureau,” is responsible for investigating all crimes against property and crimes against persons that occur within the Township, and is represented by a highly motivated and knowledgeable group of investigators. All of the detectives in the bureau have received extensive training in advanced investigative methods. In addition to this expertise, our success at solving crimes is facilitated by pro-active detectives and progressive computer technology.

The Criminal Investigation Division takes pride in not only solving crimes, but preventing them as well. This is accomplished through various investigative strategies such as prolonged investigations in areas most affected by specific crimes, surveillance of target areas, and joint operations with numerous municipal, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies when appropriate. We also endeavor upon an aggressive community policing strategy dealing with quality of life issues.

The Lyndhurst Police Department is not only highly committed to solving crimes but maintains a high desire to unify and prevent future incidents. In addition, the detectives encourage the sharing of information with members of the public. Many investigations are initiated as well as solved through this type of cooperative effort.
