The West Whiteland Police Criminal Investigation Division (CID) was formed in 1988. From 1988 until 1990, the unit consisted of one investigator. A second investigator was added in 1990. Currently, the CID consists of a Detective Sergeant and three Detectives. The responsibility of the West Whiteland Police Department Criminal Unit is to investigate, identify and successfully prosecute those responsible for committing criminal offenses within the jurisdiction of West Whiteland Township. Along with the primary responsibility of investigating criminal offenses, the CID also maintains the department’s evidence room and Live Scan automated identification equipment.
Each member of the CID has received extensive training in areas to include evidence collection and preservation, interview and interrogation, the investigation of sexual offenses involving adults and children, and crimes involving the internet. The CID enjoys an excellent working relationship with federal, state and other local law enforcement agencies. Each member of the Criminal Unit is a member of the Chester County Municipal Drug Task Force. The Task Force, which is supervised by the Chester County District Attorney’s Office, is responsible for conducting investigations into the sale, manufacturing and transportation of controlled substances within Chester County.
