Investigations Bureau


The Investigations Bureau is comprised of senior officers that have years of experience and are well rounded in the many facets of police work. They receive specialized training in areas such as death investigations, robberies, sex crimes, fraud, identity theft, and property crimes. Detectives also work closely with City, County and State Prosecutors to ensure successful prosecution. These in-depth and complex investigations often begin with the officer’s initial response to the many calls for service.   


Sex Offender Registration

This Bureau works closely with the Arizona Department of Public Safety to ensure that all Registered Sex Offenders living in the City of El Mirage comply with state law.

If a Registered Sex Offender is living in your neighborhood you will be notified. The information on these notifications is not intended to increase fear. The notification is intended to make our community a more informed community and therefore a safer community. Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate, or harass sex offenders will not be tolerated. For further information: Sex Offender Registry


Inter-Agency Task Forces

Investigators are also assigned to state and federal task forces to combat crime and apprehend offenders. Investigators are currently assigned to work with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the Gang & Immigration Intelligence Team Enforcement Mission (GIITEM).  

Our mission is to work in collaboration with citizens, partnered agencies and intelligence resources, to suppress criminal gangs, transnational crime, possession of controlled substances and drug trafficking.
