Investigations

The OSU Investigations division investigates all crimes that occur within the OSU Police jurisdiction. The main focus of our investigators is following up on the reported crimes to explore leads in hope of identifying the responsible parties. Investigators use the various tools and networks of the OSU community to serve victims of crime with the most due diligence. Investigations typically end with charges being presented to the Payne County District Attorney’s Office.  Investigators may also do internal investigations at the Police Chief’s request. Investigators conduct all background checks for our new officers and employees. One investigator oversees the OSU Police evidence room and is in charge of logging in all evidence collected by the department and is responsible with the disbursement of the evidence after criminal proceedings have been completed.
