In addition to the supervisor there are 6 Detectives assigned to this division. Three are assigned to work out of the Public Safety Building on cases generated from within the department.
Two additional detectives are assigned to the Muscatine County Drug Task Force (DTF) and 1 is assigned to a regional Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF). The detectives assigned to DTF and JTTF positions are fully or in part funded by grants received by the Muscatine Police Department from state and federal sources.
The position of detective is considered an assignment and not a rank. The Muscatine Police Department conducts all of its own investigations from simple burglaries up to and including multiple homicides. Because of this officers assigned to the Investigative Division often attend numerous training classes and seminars designed to hone their professional abilities.
