    This wealth of information highlights the investigative work of the more than 8,100 sworn officers and nearly 2,200 full-time civilian employees who staff our state and local law enforcement agencies.
    What they do – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – is no small task.

    The following cases were heard the week of August 19, 2014.
