The Crimes against Persons Section (CAP) of the Investigative Support Division (ISD) investigates felony cases that occurred inside the Fort Wayne city limits. The type of crimes investigated by CAP Detectives include rapes, sexual battery, child molesting, sexual misconduct with minors, child abuse, child neglect, voyeurism, stalking, and battery to elderly persons or persons with developmental delays. Many of these crimes are reported to the CAP Section of the ISD by outside agencies due to a delay in reporting by the victim. In addition, the CAP Section of the ISD also investigates Internet Crimes against Children (ICAC). FWPD is an affiliate of the Indiana ICAC Task Force. These types of investigations include child internet predators, child pornography, child exploitation, and child solicitation. CAP Detectives work on cases that are very sensitive in nature. They must possess strong interview and interpersonal skills, investigative knowledge, and ethics. Detectives in the CAP Section of the ISD must also have the ability to work well with outside agencies, such as the Department of Child Services, Allen County Prosecutors Office, Adult Protective Services, Sexual Assault Treatment Center, Center for Children, Indiana State Police, National Missing and Exploited Children, Federal Bureau of Investigations, and other law enforcement agencies.
