General Investigation Unit (GIU)

The General Investigation Unit investigates purse-snatchings, street robberies, and store takeover robberies, as well as some types of threatening investigations, bomb threats, and any investigation of a serial or serious nature that isn’t handled by VPD’s other specialized units.

The members of the Unit support and give direction to patrol and other sections with their investigations when needed, and they provide training to junior members on investigative techniques. They also participate in crime prevention initiatives and develop partnerships with the community.
