The Investigations Bureau is responsible for conducting investigations into major crimes, following-up on reports taken by patrol officers and preparing cases for prosecution. The detectives also work to proactively address crime trends throughout the city and disseminate information to patrol staff. The Investigations Bureau works collaboratively with officers and investigators from law enforcement agencies throughout the Bay Area to coordinate cases, share information regarding crimes and trends that affect all of San Mateo County and the Bay Area. The Investigations Bureau is staffed by a Detective Sergeant and two Detectives.
Youth ServicesThe Youth Services Unit works within the Investigations Bureau to identify youth, whom are at risk, provide outreach and education to the youth of Belmont and investigate crimes committed by juveniles. Youth Services is staffed by two School Resource Officers (SROs). One School Resource Officer is assigned to Carlmont High School and Notre Dame High School. The second School Resource Officer is assigned to Ralston Middle School and all elementary schools in the city. Our School Resource Officers work collaboratively with parents, faculty and students to improve the quality of life and safety in and around our schools. The Youth Services Unit also teaches a curriculum to all of the fifth grade students in Belmont known as Safety Awareness For Everyone, or the S.A.F.E. Program. This program, developed by former School Resource Officer Milana Jordan, concentrates on youth safety and awareness and helps prepare the children in our community for life as a teenager and some of the challenges they may face.
