The OSU Investigations division investigates all crimes that occur within OSU Police
jurisdiction. The main focus of our investigators is following up on reported crimes
to identify responsible parties.
Investigations typically end with charges being presented to the Payne County district
attorney’s office. Investigators may also do internal investigations at the request
of the chief of police.
Investigators conduct all background checks for our new officers and employees. One
investigator oversees the OSU Police evidence room and is in charge of logging in
all evidence collected by the department and disbursing the evidence after criminal
proceedings are completed.
