The purpose and function of the Criminal Investigation Unit is to support patrol officers by providing follow-up investigations on major and specialized crime incidents. Due to the size of our agency, a detective with the Rehoboth Beach Police Department is considered a general assignment detective.

The detective is also responsible for conducting pre-employment background investigations on police officer candidates. Constant attention to this important function allows our department to have confidence that we have screened and selected only the most highly qualified candidates to become police officers.
In addition the detective acts as the department's liaison with the Rehoboth Beach Neighborhood Watch.
