Introduction and Scope:
The Criminal Investigation Department is a part of the State Police Organisation, which exercises a general watch and control on the functioning of the State Police relating to crime covering all the aspects of prevention, investigation and detection of crime. It is concerned with collection, dissemination and record of information relating to crimes and criminals. It also deals with matters relating to study and research, criminology and social defence.
With the creation of Mizoram as Union Territory in 1972, the Criminal Investigation Department came into existence as an independent unit under an officer of the rank of Superintendent of Police designated as Superintendent of Police, Criminal Investigation Department. He functions under the control and supervision of the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Criminal Investigation Department. The Deputy Inspector General of Police, Criminal Investigation Department shall, in due course of time when an independent post is created, head the office of the Criminal Investigation Department directly. This is important because the State Criminal Investigation Department is to supervise the crime work of the district police headed by an Superintendent of Police. It is to issue guidelines, directions and even orders to the district police.
