Criminal Investigations


The Dade City Police Department has three full-time detectives responsible for investigating all major crimes that occur within the city limits. Each detective is on-call for one week at a time (twenty six weeks per year) and is required to respond to any major crime scene. They also cover special details within the city and are sometimes assigned to patrol to help cover open shifts in that division.

The detectives conduct neighborhood watch meetings, crime prevention seminars, and serve as liaisons between the Department and various task forces to accommodate the needs of the community. They also serve as Department representatives when the Emergency Operations Center is activated.
