SCU detectives are responsible for investigating criminal activities including illegal drug laboratories, trafficking in stolen property, all narcotic offenses and prostitution cases within the city of Peoria. SCU detectives also assist other units within the department with surveillance and the apprehension of wanted fugitives. SCU detectives often work in conjunction with other valley police agencies, as well as the FBI, DEA, and the Bureau of Alcohol and Firearms. This unit includes property crimes investigators who are primarily responsible for proactive and follow-up investigations of crimes involving thefts, burglaries, and auto theft.

Community Impact Team
The Community Impact Team (AKA: Impact) was born of a need to be able to deploy resources to emerging trends, priority problems (hotspots) and community concerns. The team also works special events in the city. Team members were selected for their understanding of modern policing concepts of; data driven, intelligence led, predictive policing. The team members all demonstrated an understanding and commitment to community policing- partnering with the community to solve problems, a commitment to crime prevention and motivated to develop innovative solutions to problem solving.

K9 Team
The Peoria Police Department's K9 Team is set up to assist officers in their search for hidden suspects and locate articles or evidence of a crime, including the presence of narcotics and/or explosives. Police dogs can run at speeds up to 35mph and have an incredible sense of smell – up to 1 million times stronger than the human sense of smell. These characteristics make our police dogs an invaluable asset to the department, its officers and the public.

The team consists of three sworn officers and three police service dogs. Two of the dogs, Rocco and Havoc, are Belgian Malinois - a breed known for its intense drive and physical endurance. Rocco and Havoc are cross-certified as patrol and narcotic dogs. The unit’s third dog, Zappa, is a  Black Lab, and serves only as a narcotic detection dog.
