The Special Victims Unit (SVU) is responsible for the investigation of crimes involving the juvenile population, either as a victim or as a suspect, and any vulnerable adult. SVU is also responsible for the investigation of Missing Persons/Runaways, Domestic Violence Incidents, Sexual Assaults and Sex Related Crimes. These Detectives are specially trained to deal with sensitive issues that arise from victims of domestic violence and sex related crimes. Incidents involving Missing Persons and Juveniles are given particular importance due to the vulnerability of the victims.
The School Resource Officers (SRO) work under the supervision of this unit, in conjunction with the Community Policing Section. The SRO is the liaison between the school and the police department, opening communication for Administrators, Teachers, and Students. One SRO is assigned to Piscataway High School and the other is responsible for the three Middle Schools.
