The Criminal Investigations Division includes Crimes Against Persons and
Property, Narcotics Unit, Crime Analysis Unit, Criminalist Unit, and a
Crime Victim Advocate.
The Criminal Investigations Division participates in the Child Abuse Task Force by funding a child abuse investigator who works out of the Collin County Children’s Advocacy Center in Plano. Suspected child abuse should be reported to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services at 800-252-5400. This toll free hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you feel a situation is a life-threatening emergency, please call 911. The Texas DFPS works with local agencies to investigate reports of alleged abuse.
General Investigations Unit The
General Investigations Unit investigates all unsolved offenses that
occur in Allen city limits. Investigators assigned to this unit are also
responsible for preparing and filing criminal cases with the Collin
County District Attorney or other prosecuting agencies.
Crime Victim Advocate The
Crime Victim Advocate works with victims of crime to help restore their
physical, mental, and emotional health. To accomplish this, the Crime
Victim Advocate can assist with Crime Victim's Compensation paperwork,
attend court with victims, make referral for crisis counseling and other
social services. The Crime Victim Advocate works closely with
investigators to help the victim navigate the criminal justice system.
