The Criminal Investigation Division (CID) of the Robinson Police Department is under the direction of Lieutenant Lewellen and consists of two additional detectives. The detectives conduct investigations into all major crimes which occur within the City of Robinson or cases which are out of the scope or normal duties for the Patrol Division.

C.I.D. provides services to our community in a professional manner through follow-up investigations of reported criminal offenses. The goal of the Criminal Investigation Division is to solve reported crimes in a timely and efficient manner with due regard for the victim and suspect’s personal rights.

Responsibilities of C.I.D. include:

  • Investigates criminal acts
  • Investigate missing persons and runaway reports
  • Collects and preserves evidence
  • Process crime scenes
  • Prepares cases for prosecution
  • Responds to major incidents
  • Detection and apprehension of criminal violators

Crimes are generally broken down into two distinct categories. Those categories are Crimes against Persons and Crimes against Property.

Crimes against Persons

Crimes against persons is the investigation of violence against individuals, which includes murder, aggravated assaults, assaults, sexual assaults, robbery, harassment, weapons violations, indecent exposure, child abuses, missing persons and runaways.

Crimes against Property

Crimes against property is the investigation of crimes involving property, which include burglary, auto theft, criminal mischief and forgery. The monitoring of pawn shop records is used and greatly increases our ability to recover stolen property and prosecute those who committed the thefts.

The Criminal Investigation Division works closely with other agencies in the McLennan County area; such as the Children’s Advocacy Center, Texas Rangers, Texas Department of Public Safety, Waco Police Department and the McLennan County Sheriff’s Office.
