The LaSalle Police Department Detective Division handles criminal investigations that are generally too time consuming or complex to be handled by officers in the patrol division. The Detective Division is currently supervised by Detective Lt. Mike Smudzinski.
Detectives are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. Detectives are responsible for investigating everything from runaways to homicides and are some of the most respected detectives in the Illinois Valley.
Due to their dedication, unique abilities and success rate, Detectives from the LaSalle Police Department are specifically sought out by other area agencies and are routinely requested to assist in their investigations. While many of their efforts go unrecognized by the general public, the LaSalle Police Department appreciates their individual efforts and would like to thank them for their sacrifices.
