The Family Crimes Detail has the responsibility of investigating offenses related to:

  • All Domestic Violence Related Incidents
  • Child Abuse Investigations (physical)
  • Elder Abuse Cases
  • Missing Juvenile Incidents
  • Child Abduction/Stealing/Kidnapping
  • Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor
  • Criminal Threats (Domestic Violence related or on the phone)
  • Disturbances
  • Lewd/Annoying Phone Calls
  • Missing Persons
  • Stalking (Domestic Violence related)
  • Violations of Court Orders

In our effort to be more responsive and available to the needs of the community, police detectives, advocates, and other staff personnel work at the Anaheim Family Justice Center jointly with other service agencies. These partner agencies include Child and Family Services, Adult Protective Services, CalWorks (financial aid), Chapman Law School Legal Clinic, CSP Domestic Violence Assistance Program, and several women’s shelters.

The investigation of domestic violence, child abuse, and elder abuse is very challenging. Detectives assigned to this detail meet rigid selection criteria and are highly trained.

The Family Crimes Detail also handles cases involving missing juveniles (usually runaways), court order violations, and annoying phone calls.


Child Abuse Services Team (C.A.S.T.)

Child Abuse Services Team (CAST) is a partner agency that provides a multi-disciplinary team program for conducting child abuse investigations at a single site. CAST's coordinated-on-site services have enabled social services, law enforcement, deputy district attorneys, medical providers, and therapists to collaborate on investigations. Thus, investigations are completed in a more timely, thorough and consistent manner. This benefits both the child and their family during the investigation of child abuse. The child-focused and friendly environment at CAST serves to further reduce the trauma for these children. CAST is a place where they can play comfortably and non-offending parents receive immediate support from experienced staff and volunteers. Children can be brought to CAST only after a report of suspected maltreatment has been made to a child protective agency. In Orange County, both the Department of Children and Family Services within the Orange County Social Services Agency and law enforcement agencies and police departments are considered child protective agencies. For more information, visit the website at http://www.oc.ca.gov/cast.
