Criminal Investigations Division (CID)   
Criminal Investigations Division (CID) at the Van Buren Police Department consists of five detectives that work around the clock to solve crimes that occur within our city.  

  • Lieutenant Stephen Staggs

Not only does CID have a number of tools that aide detectives in their investigations, but each detective is highly trained in his/her field.  Four detectives are CVSA (Lie Detector examiners), two are crime scene techs, and four are drug recognition experts.  CID also handles sex offender registration within the city.  

The Van Buren Police Department CID team has a high success rate of crimes solved, ranging all the way from check fraud to homicide.  We have trained detectives that work diligently to make the internet a safer place for our children by actively pursuing child pornographers and sexual predators.  Within CID is a Drug Taskforce Team that actively seeks criminals selling and dealing illegal drugs and controlled substances within the City of Van Buren.
