Division & Units

Investigative Services Division

Investigations detectives are responsible for following up on felony cases that are forwarded by patrol officers and preparing the cases for presentation to the District Attorney’s Office, who ultimately decides whether the case will be prosecuted. Units within Investigations include Crimes Against Persons, Property and Economic Crimes, Special Victims Unit, Pawn Detail, Cold Case Unit, Hi-Tech Task Force and Special Investigations.


The Investigative Services Division (ISD) is full of dedicated men and women who truly care about their community. The professionals assigned to this division play a vital role in its success in one of three areas: Investigations, Special Operations, and the Stanislaus County Drug Enforcement Agency. While budget restrictions in 2007 have led to a decrease in staffing, the Investigative Services Division (ISD) has worked through these difficulties, continuing to offer its best to the citizens of our community.

Task Special Operations consists of the Street Crimes Unit, Modesto Narcotics Enforcement Team, Stanislaus County Auto Theft Task Force (STANCATT) and the Central Valley Gang Intelligence Task Force, a multi-agency task force formed to help track and convict gang members in the Stanislaus County Area. These units work closely with Investigations since many perpetrators involved in the drug and gang communities are also connected to property crimes, crimes against persons, and economic crimes. The Stanislaus County Drug Enforcement Agency is also a multi-agency force, focusing on large drug dealers in Stanislaus County.
