The Criminal Investigations Detachment (CID)

investigates felony and misdemeanor crimes occurring in the Siloam Springs city limits. Detectives investigate violent crimes, crimes against persons, property crimes, financial crime and narcotics offenses. They conduct missing persons and crime scene investigations, internal investigations, track and monitor sexual offenders and participate in federal task forces.  The Criminal Investigation Detachment participates in the Benton County Child Abduction Response Team and responds to calls for service during times of need.

Sex Offender Registration Management

CID is also responsible for tracking and managing sex offender registration for all sex offenders residing within the city limits as required by state law. As part of our proactive management strategy, in addition to conducting offender registration, our detectives conduct residency verification and unannounced compliance checks. If you have any concerns about an offender living in your area, please contact CID. Additional information on sex offender registration requirements for the State of Arkansas can be found at the Arkansas Crime Information Center resource.

Avoid Internet, Mail and Phone Scams with these Tips

Computer, telephone and mail fraud is a serious issue. They are difficult to investigate and often come from sources outside of the State or even the country.  Residents of Siloam Spring may receive offers or contacts on the phone, via the mail or on the internet promising them lucrative opportunities to make money, or asking their aid for a missing loved one. If you live in the City of Siloam Springs and believe you may be a victim of a fraud scheme, we ask you to contact us. If it appears the contact was fraudulent, we will complete a crime report for you and investigate the offense if it occurred within our jurisdiction.  If on the other hand, the crime was initiated outside the United States, or in another jurisdiction, we will complete an information report and forward it. Residents are also urged to go to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Internet Crime Complaint Center, known as IC3, to report possible crimes, or get information on the latest scams.
