Sergeant John Lawrence, Officer Tyler Allen and Officer Dani Vargas are responsible for investigating most of the major crimes that occur in Moscow. Together they work closely with State, Federal and local agencies and bring to the Investigations Division more than 50 years of combined law enforcement experience. In order to complement their experience, the Moscow Police Department has invested heavily in technology and training to keep up with changes.
