Detective Division


In 2010 the Investigations Unit underwent some re-adjustment. The Special Enforcement Unit was absorbed into the Investigations Unit. This allows the unit to focus as a whole on the ever changing problems of the city.

Clearance Rate

In 2013, the Investigations Unit detectives were assigned 484 cases and solved 117 for a clearance rate of 24.1%. These cases included Attempted homicides, rapes, property crimes, financial crimes and other types of offenses. Merriam detectives were also involved with a Metro Squad investigation. Sgt. Duvanel and MPO Wes Waller assisted Platte County on a Metro Squad murder case in 2013.
