Technical Investigations Unit

Supervisor: Sergeant James Isaacs

The mission of the Technical Investigation Unit is to provide expert assistance to investigators in criminal cases that involve phones, computers, or video surveillance. The current prevalence of these technologies results in their presence during the commission of the majority of crimes that occur in the City of Dearborn. These crimes include, but are not limited to: murder, sexual assault, robbery, telecommunications fraud, child exploitation, cyber stalking/harassment, the possession and distribution of child pornography over the Internet, computer tampering, criminal hacking, and all other incidents in which technology was used to accomplish or facilitate the commission of a crime. The results of technical examinations were utilized in hundreds of cases, which resulted in the discovery of evidence that was critical in the prosecution of the criminals that perpetrated these crimes.

Members of the Technical Investigation Unit are specially trained and Nationally Certified in Cell Phone Forensic Analysis, Forensic Video Analysis, Computer Forensic Analysis and Vehicle Forensic Analysis. This year, they have extracted and analyzed approximately 3 TB (Terabytes) worth of digital evidence, which would be equivalent to nearly 225 million pieces of paper. The Technical Investigation Unit assists our detectives as well as investigators and prosecutors from our neighboring agencies at the local, state and federal levels.

Youth Services Bureau

Supervisor: Sergeant Jason Skoczylas

The Dearborn Police Youth Services Bureau includes both the Youth Bureau Investigative Unit and the School Resource Officer (SRO) Unit.
Juveniles committing violent crimes are petitioned to the Wayne County Juvenile Court, as are non-resident juveniles who commit misdemeanor crimes. Parents who fail to have their children appear in court or appear for the work program may be subject to court imposed charges and/or penalties.
The Youth Bureau also works very closely with Growth Works, a case management organization, which requires juveniles to meet regularly with a community team and discuss their progress. Detective Bureau Investigators also assist the School Resource Officers in dealing with many issues at the schools.

Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT)

Officer in Charge: Captain Vincent BelloliSWAT patch


The Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team members are recruited, trained, and equipped to resolve critical incidents involving a threat to public safety, which would otherwise exceed the capabilities of traditional law enforcement first responders and/or investigative units.

Members of the Dearborn Police SWAT Team have other primary assignments within the police department, with SWAT duties being a secondary assignment. Members train as a team a minimum of once per month with an additional week of annual team training at off-site locations.

The primary goal in every Dearborn Police SWAT operation is the preservation of life through the strategic use of all available time, tactics, and resources, while minimizing the disruption to the community, in a manner that reduces the chances of violence, injury, or death to citizens, officers, and suspects.

The Dearborn Police SWAT Team is currently comprised of 23 members which includes the team commander, executive officer, team leaders, operators, designated marksmen, and Tactical Emergency Medical Service (TEMS) medics. All team members must pass a rigorous selection process, annual fitness test, weapons proficiency courses, and graduate from a Basic SWAT School prior to achieving full operational status on the team.

TEMS medics are full-time paramedics and members of the Dearborn Fire Department. TEMS medics must also become Dearborn Police Reserve Officers in addition to meeting all the above requirements for team membership.

The SWAT Team works closely with other department specialty units including the Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) Team, the Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT), and the small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) Team, as well as with tactical teams from other law enforcement agencies. SWAT Team members working their primary assignments are always ready and available to immediately respond to any in-progress incidents that occur, and in many cases are able to resolve potentially critical incidents without a full team response and with minimal disturbance to the community.
