It is our task to serve the citizens of Broome County, to prevent and investigate crimes committed in order to make Broome County a safer place to live and work. The Detective Division is divided into four units General Investigations, Special Investigations, Juvenile, and Warrants. The General and Juvenile Investigation Units investigate adult and juvenile crimes to include burglaries, robberies, larcenies, sex offenses, frauds, and other felony-level crimes. The Special Investigations Unit in the Detective Division conducts narcotics-related investigations throughout Broome County. Members of this unit work together as a Task Force with the Binghamton Police Department, the Village of Johnson City Police Department, and the Village of Endicott Police Department. The Warrant Division serves arrest warrants issued by county and local courts throughout the United States.
