The detective bureau is responsible for all investigative work of the Framingham Police Department. Officers must apply and if accepted, are assigned to the bureau. This division is comprised of 2 components, the General Duty Unit Investigators and the Narcotic Unit Investigators. Many of the detectives have attended special schooling to aid them in their ability to investigate the wide variety of crimes that can occur in a community such as Framingham.
Bureau of Investigation
Recently, under a restructure of the department, the Domestic Violence Unit and the Print and Photo Bureau were combined with the Detective Bureau to form the Bureau of Investigation. This will allow a broader investigative ability by combining manpower of these units.
