Criminal Investigation


The Criminal Investigations Division (C.I.D) is the primary investigative arm of the Midlothian Police Department and is comprised of one CID Sergeant, a CID Corporal and four investigators, all of whom maintain an investigative caseload.

They are assigned the task of investigating all reported criminal offenses, as well as other investigations initiated by the department, such as vice and narcotics.

Their investigative duties include interviewing witnesses, suspects, and victims and ensuring that felony and misdemeanor cases are properly prepared and filed with the District Attorney’s Office.

They are responsible for maintaining the integrity and security of the department’s property room where criminal evidence and found property is stored until needed in court or until a judge orders its disposition.

One investigator is assigned to the Tri-County Auto Theft Task Force.  The Midlothian Police Department has joined with the Burleson Police Department, Kennedale Police Department, Mansfield Police Department, and the Tarrant County Constable Pct. 7 to target auto burglaries and auto thefts with the formation of the Tri-County Auto Burglary & Theft Prevention Task Force.


C.I.D Investigators handle both adult and juvenile cases involving:

  • Crimes against persons, such as homicide, robbery, sexual assault, and harassment
  • Crimes against property, such as burglary and theft, arson, fraud, and criminal mischief
  • Missing persons
  • Runaways
  • Narcotic Offenses
