The Detective Bureau is comprised of several units within the investigative section. The Detective Bureau includes General Investigations, Youth Crimes, Special Victims Unit, School Resource Officers and the Crime Scene/Identification Unit. The bureau also includes the Crime Prevention, ICAC, Polygraph, Western Wayne Auto Elimination Effort Task Force, and Court Services Units.

The Executive Lieutenant of the Investigative Section is the officer in charge of the Detective Bureau.
The Livonia Police Detective Bureau strives to investigate and prosecute all complaints made by any and all citizens that have had the unfortunate circumstance to be a victim of a crime. The detective assigned to each case will investigate each incident fully, until a suspect is developed and prosecuted, or until all leads have been exhausted. The Detective Bureau works as a team to provide the best service possible to each and every citizen.
The Crime Prevention Unit works with all Neighborhood Watch groups, senior citizens and civic groups within the city to assist community programs in the pursuit of reducing crime. This unit also heads the department’s yearly PASSPORT TO SAFETY event – which is a fun filled day of learning for children under the age of 10 and RUN 2 SAVE OUR YOUTH event – which consists of a 5k run/walk and 10k run.
Any questions about these events, crime prevention, or free drug testing kits for Livonia youth please call Detective Sergeant in charge of the Crime Prevention Bureau at (734) 466-2324.
