Today is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, and we at the District Attorney’s Office are extremely thankful for all the men and women across our great country that put on a badge every day and go to work—knowing that they may face dangerous situations.
At the District Attorney’s Office we are fortunate to have a highly-skilled Bureau of Investigation which currently consists of fifty-two sworn peace officer investigators, including one Chief Investigator and two Assistant Chief Investigators.
They hail from police agencies across the state and possess a wide range of investigative experience. As members of the Bureau they investigate crimes and make arrests related to real estate fraud, auto insurance fraud, workers' compensation insurance fraud, healthcare fraud, environmental crimes, consumer crimes, public integrity crimes, gang crimes, child abduction, cold-case homicides, sexually violent predators and mentally disordered offenders.
They conduct investigations of all felonies and misdemeanors prosecuted by the District Attorney. Investigators are active members with the FBI/San Bernardino Joint Corruption Task Force, the FBI Regional Computer Forensic Laboratory, the Department of Homeland Security Investigations, the California State Department of Insurance Task Force, the San Bernardino County Auto Theft Task Force and the San Bernardino County Human Trafficking Detail.
Bureau investigators are also supported by 15 Investigative Technicians and 10 Office Assistants.
In addition to their assigned duties, our Bureau staff are consistent organizers and participants in San Bernardino County outreach programs such as Shop with a Cop, Tip-a-Cop, the Annual Special Olympics Torch Run, and many more—all of which raise funds and support programs that benefit disabled children and local families in need.
Today, we salute not only our own officers, but every officer across the nation. May all of you make it home safely tonight.
