The Investigations section consists of two Detectives who are supervised by Deputy Chief James Druen. The Investigations section is responsible for conducting in-depth and sometimes lengthy investigations of criminal offenses, providing employment background checks on potential new employees, and providing protection for dignitaries visiting the University of Kansas.

The Investigations section frequently assists local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies as their investigations bring them to campus. The Detectives have specialized training and serve as resources for other members of the department. They provide training and assistance in areas such as photography, crime scene management, evidence collection and processing, and interview techniques.

To contact the Investigations section call 785-864-5900 and ask to be transferred to their line.
