Waterbury Forensics Division

The Forensics Division of the Waterbury Police Department falls under the command of the Criminal Investigation Bureau. The Division consists of the Crime Scene, Video Analysis and Firearms Units. 


Multi-Skilled Division

The Forensic Division maintains a high level of professionalism in the performance of their duty. Each member is able to assist patrol, detectives and specialized units in a variety of circumstances that range from homicides, motor vehicle accidents, assaults, untimely or suspicious deaths and all incidents in between. The Forensic Division regularly attends training and educational conferences to keep up with the forensic science discipline.

Video Analysis Unit

The Video Analysis Unit has seen a tremendous increase in video surveillance work, which has, in turn, placed demands on archiving both photographs and videos on the forensic computer drive. The unit also performs analysis of certain types of video evidence and determines the relevancy of the evidence to the incident, and may assist with providing aspects of evidence reconstruction.  

Public Fingerprinting

The Waterbury Police Department has a contract agreement with Biometric Identification Services to provide fingerprint services for all public fingerprinting conducted at the Waterbury Police Department. This partnership has enabled the members of the crime scene unit to concentrate on work-related tasks. Any public fingerprinting questions can be answered by clicking the link below.
