Mission Statement

The mission of the Chula Vista Police Department (CVPD) Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is to gather, analyze and disseminate proactive criminal intelligence information to support internal and external law enforcement efforts within the community. The unit uses all available resources to conduct sensitive investigations in the areas of intelligence, narcotics, vice, police-regulated businesses, and public corruption.

Members hold trust, integrity and support as core values and the foundation for successfully achieving our mission.


The foundation for this value is the relationship between our unit, the Department, and the community. This value is the foundation in society for maintaining respect for the rule of law, and we will preserve and strengthen these bonds wherever possible.


We will maintain integrity by ensuring that the confidentiality and proper use of sensitive information is subject to the highest level of internal and external review.


By working together with Departmental units, as well as other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, we will strengthen our ability to successfully investigate, arrest and prosecute criminal offenders operating within our region.

SIU is comprised of one sergeant, eleven investigators, a community service officer and a civilian intelligence analyst. A significant number of the SIU investigators are formally assigned to regional task forces sponsored by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States Customs Service and Drug Enforcement Administration. These task forces generally focus on major narcotic trafficking organizations, gangs and computer criminal forensics.

As evidenced by the Mission Statement, the SIU is responsible for maintaining liaison with the local, state and federal law enforcement intelligence representatives. The SIU also conducts investigations related to vice and public corruption.

The SIU is responsible for processing, reviewing and inspecting all police regulated businesses including:

Holistic Health Practitioners
Massage Technicians
Solicitors or Transient Merchants
Vending Vehicle Inspections
Non-Profit Organizations
Alcohol Beverage Control Applications
