The CFISD Criminal Investigations Division (CID) is comprised of two units; the Criminal Investigations Unit and the Gang Investigations Unit.
The mission of the Criminal Investigations Division is to provide support to the CFISD Police Department and CFISD as a whole by conducting timely and thorough criminal investigations. The unit is dedicated to providing superior investigative services, in order to ensure the preservation of life, the protection of property, and to maintain the overall safety and security of the district’s students, faculty, staff, and facilities. Our investigators also work closely with our outside law enforcement partners to successfully solve crimes, gather intelligence, to share resources, and to identify and apprehend suspected criminals.
The goal of the Criminal Investigations Unit is to take a leadership position to insure that all investigative leads and evidence are incorporated into a comprehensive investigation, in order to present a case that is prosecutable in court and to insure that all local, state, and federal laws as well as all departmental policies and guidelines are followed.
The goal of the Gang Investigations Unit is to partner with our CFISD community to proactively combat gang issues through education, prevention, and intervention. In addition the Gang Investigations Unit will employ traditional law-enforcement based gang suppression strategies. A primary function of the Gang Investigations Unit is to assist schools and individual families in dealing with at-risk youth who may be involved in gang activity. The Gang Intervention Officers do regularly provide gang activity assessments for our school administration and campus officers. The Gang Intervention Officers also give gang awareness presentations to campus administration, faculty, and staff as well as parent and community groups.
The Criminal Investigations Division is supervised by Sgt. Michael Gallaway and Lt. Jimmy Banks.
