Criminal Investigations Unit (CIU)
Sergeant Kelly Slone
The Elizabethtown Police Department Criminal Investigations Unit is currently staffed with four detectives and one sergeant. The Criminal Investigations Unit investigates all serious Felony crimes such as robbery, burglary, arsons, assaults, and sexual assaults within the city limits of Elizabethtown. The Criminal Investigations Unit is a specialized unit made up of officers within the department who display an interest for extra training and knowledge in the area of criminal investigations.
Our Detectives are trained in the latest techniques in crime scene processing, evidence collection and interviewing techniques so as to ensure successful apprehension, prosecution and conviction of suspects.
The Criminal investigation Unit currently has two additional detectives assigned to the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force. The Task Force consists of area law enforcement officers who form a multi-jurisdictional unit with the sole purpose to combat illegal possession, trafficking and manufacturing of all controlled substances.
We are a supporter of the Community Orientated Policing concept. The CIU will host meetings for area businesses and financial institutions in order to discuss potential problems, and address the needs of the community. We also host the Central Kentucky Intelligence Meeting, which meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 10:00 AM. The meeting is open to all state, federal and local law enforcement agencies. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss cases that may cross over into other areas of Kentucky, and compare similar crimes in other jurisdictions.
Crime tips can be reported anonymously by calling Hardin County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-597-8123. Crime Stoppers pays cash up to $1000.00 for information on crimes that lead to convictions.
