DPS Home Police Services Divisions Investigations

Divisions - Investigations

The Investigations Division provides both internal and follow-up investigations in criminal offenses and administrative matters related to Airport security and access.  Annually, this division investigates over 1600 crimes reported at DFW Airport. Fifteen sworn personnel and two civilians staff this division on a regular basis.
  • Administrative Investigation:  Conducts background checks on those requiring secure access, and investigates violations of the Airport Security Plan.
  • Criminal Investigation:  Detectives and other personnel assigned to this section investigate offenses by interviewing suspects and witnesses, filing cases, and facilitating the arraignment and transport of prisoners.  Detectives might utilize in-house evidence evaluation and technology to determine case specifics.
  • Property Crime Investigation:  With literally millions of pounds of cargo and baggage moving through the Airport, this section is responsible for investigating property crime.  Auto theft and credit card abuse/fraud is addressed here as well.
  • Internal Affairs Investigation:  Investigates and disposes of both internally- and externally-originated complaints against department employees.
  • Task Forces:  Coordinate with other agencies, such as the Drug Enforcement Administration and Joint Terrorism Task Force, to identify and suppress criminal activity.
