Bureau of Criminal Investigations
The Criminal Investigation Unit serves as the investigative branch of the department. It is the mission of the CIU to conduct follow-up investigations of crimes initially investigated by patrol officers and to perform investigations of serious felonies such as homicide, rape, robbery, and drug trafficking.
Domestic Violence Unit
The Canton Police Department has a "zero-tolerance" policy towards domestic violence. This means we will vigorously and thoroughly investigate all cases of reported violence and prosecute in a timely fashion.
Family Services - School Resource Officer
The Family Services Unit is responsible for the two high schools, three elementary schools and the middle school located in Canton. In addition to the schools, the FSU investigates all sexual assaults that occur within our jurisdiction.
The Canton Police Honor Guard was established to represent the department and its officers at police funerals, parades and ceremonial events.
Mobile Operations Unit
The duties of the Canton Police Mobile Operations Unit include traffic enforcement, police escorts, and participation in numerous special events.
Mountain Bike Unit
The Canton Police Department currently employs a fleet of four Cannondale mountain bikes. They provide officers with an effective community policing tool by allowing for personal interaction between citizens and officers not possible in the cruiser.
