New Homeland Security measures have increased the responsibilities and cooperation of the General Investigations with outside Agencies such as the New Jersey State Police, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms.

The GIS is comprised of the Warrant Unit, the Police Aide Program, the Pawn Unit, the Technical Agency Computer Operator, the Arson Unit, the Domestic Violence Response Team, the Juvenile Bureau, and the Forensic Investigations Unit.  In the year 2002 The 10 Officer “Casino Investigation Unit” was phased out, and the investigators were absorbed into the General Investigations Unit in order to streamline the division and handle the more than 12, 961 criminal investigations generated in 2003.”
