Major Crimes Division

The Criminal Investigations Division is committed to providing the highest quality investigative services to the citizens of Glynn County. We will protect the public by deterring crime using innovative investigative and specialized enforcement strategies. The Investigations Division is responsible for conducting in-depth inquiries into alleged criminal activity and taking the necessary steps to bring offenders before the court. Cases are assigned based on workload, potential for clearance, in-house expertise and availability of external resources.

The Major Crimes Division is comprised of three units:

This includes all aspects of work associated with illegal drug activities and vice crimes such as prostitution, gaming, illegal weapons, and illegal alcohol sales.
