Major Chris Garland, Supervisor
The mission of the Murray Police Department Investigations Division is to work in a true partnership with our fellow officers and with the citizens of Murray to enhance the quality of life in our community. Some goals are:
- To identify suspects in cases with solvability potential
- To submit cases to the County Attorney and Commonwealth Attorney for prosecution
- To raise the level of public safety, through Education, Cooperation, and Dedication.
The Murray Police Department Investigations Division is staffed with five detectives, which includes two supervisors. The unit is responsible for investigating all major crimes that occur within the city of Murray. All investigators of the Murray Police Department are highly skilled in the various areas of law enforcement and conduct both criminal and narcotic investigations. This unit works closely with federal, state, and local agencies.
