Criminal Investigation Division

The Criminal Investigation Division is under the direction of Lt. Melissa Wright (361-825-3791) and carries out the investigatory function by conducting preliminary and follow-up investigations of crimes that have occurred on campus.  The detectives assigned to the division work closely with other law enforcement agencies as well as the Nueces County District Attorney’s office.  All crimes that are reported to the University Police Department are investigated and referred for prosecution when appropriate. Criminal matters involving students are also referred to the university’s Judicial Affairs office.
