Investigative Support Services provides qualified specialized investigators to support the Niagara Regional Police Divisions in solving crimes, identifying crime trends and the reduction of criminal activities.

As well, Investigative Support Services offers specialized training to officers to improve their investigative abilities on a yearly basis.
