The Criminal Investigation Division Sergeant attends meetings with all of the other investigative commanders (as well as State Police and the FBI) in the County. They discuss details of on-going investigations and decide on the crime of the week. This crime is featured on television and in newspapers. If the crime of the week occurred in Urbana, a Detective will film the television spot with a local station video crew.
