The Juvenile Detective and School Resource Officer dual role works closely with the rest of the Investigation Division and specializes in felony and misdemeanor crimes that involve juveniles as the suspect or victim, and all sexual abuse crimes. It also provides officers to assist at the local high schools, middle schools, and various elementary schools in our communities with school related law enforcement issues. For increased effectiveness, two detectives share the same responsibilities which resulted in increased communication amongst Investigations in relation to juvenile crime and counseling.
These Detectives are specially trained to handle child abuse crimes and sexual assault crimes. These Detectives also specialize in Child Family Services, domestic violence, sex offender monitoring, and crime prevention. The Detectives works in collaboration with Marin Child Family Services, Jeannette Prandi Children’s Center, Sexual Assault and Response Team, the Marin Center for Domestic Peace, and Bay Area Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The Detectives also investigate school related crimes and missing juveniles. The Detectives are involved in school attendance review boards, expulsion hearings, and a variety of school related committees. The Detectives also give presentations to youth, parents, and school personnel on a wide range of law enforcement topics.
