The KBI Field Investigations Division provides professional investigative assistance to local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. Local law enforcement agencies request KBI assistance when crimes are committed in their jurisdictions that require expert criminal investigative skills. Special agents focus primarily on investigating criminal acts such as homicides, major violent crimes, crimes against children, and governmental integrity/public corruption cases.

The Child Victims Unit, the Crime Scene Response Team, and the Missing Persons Clearinghouse are a few of the critical programs under the KBI’s Field Investigations Division.
