Investigations & Special Operations


The Investigations Division investigates felony and high priority reports. The Portales Police Department organizes its investigative function along crime types.  This specialization allows detectives to develop expertise that improves our ability to investigate and ultimately have offenders charged in the criminal courts.   Several of the detectives are on call out status, due to the fact that crime scenes such as homicides, robberies and sexual offenses are complex and require immediate processing, for both the physical evidence as well as witness interviews. In addition, the Investigations and Special Operations Division actively participates in the Region V Drug Task Force and the Major Crimes Unit.
