The Services Division is made up of several subsections including Aviation Section, Bureau of Investigations, Evidence Collection Unit, Serious Traffic Accident Reconstruction (STAR), Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT), Narcotics Investigations, and Internet Crimes Against Children.
Kenton County Aviation Section
From its inception in 2016, the Aviation Section has worked diligently to obtain the appropriate unmanned aircraft to support a wide array of missions. Today, the Aviation Section has nine FAA Certificated Pilots flying the Mavic Pro, Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual, and the Matrice 210.
Bureau of Investigations
The Bureau of Investigations or B of I, is responsible for investigating major crimes which occur. These crimes include, but are not limited to, murder, sexual assault, rape, fraud, theft, embezzlement, and child exploitation. The B of I consists of three general detectives, a crimes against children detective, and a detective sergeant.
Internet Crimes Against Children
The ICAC Task Force was created to enable state and local law enforcement agencies to develop an effective response to technology-facilitated child sexual exploitation and crimes.
Evidence Collection Unit
The Kenton County Police Department Evidence Collection Unit (ECU) responds to all major crime scenes in unincorporated Kenton County and wherever the unit is requested in Northern Kentucky.
Serious Traffic Accident Reconstruction (STAR)
The Kenton County Police Department's Serious Traffic Accident Reconstruction Team (STAR) is a full functioning collision reconstruction unit that provides assistance to all Kenton County communities. The STAR team is called out on serious and fatal traffic collisions to help determine the cause, identify any contributing factors, and also file criminal charges if appropriate.
Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT)
The Kenton County Police participate in the Kenton County Regional Swat Team (KCRS) which operates under the authority of the Kenton County Sheriff. As a member of the team we provide officers as operators for the team as well as providing crisis negotiators.
Drug trafficking, drug-motivated crimes, and overdose deaths affect the quality of life for all residents, not just the end users themselves. For this reason, the Kenton County Police Department (KCPD) partners with the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force (NKDSF) and with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
