Support Services Division
Criminal Investigation Division. The Criminal Investigation Division (CID) conducts follow-up investigations to offense and incident reports initiated by the Patrol Division. You may check your case's status by contacting the LEPD at 214-975-0460, or the contact number provided to you by your case's assigned detective. Hours of operation for CID are 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday-Friday.
Crime Scene Investigations. During the on-scene investigation, a member of the Criminal Investigation Division is responsible for locating, documenting, marking, and collecting physical evidence, ensuring the chain of custody of evidence is maintained, associating persons to the scene of the crime, completing detailed sketches of the crime scene, taking accurate measurements of the crime scene, and reconstructing the crime scene.
Evidence Collection. The Little Elm Police Department operates a property and evidence room that is maintained by the Criminal Investigation Division. After collection, the evidence is logged into the evidence facility and assigned a permanent location within the evidence room. It may remain there until final disposition. If you have any questions about the property room or believe we have property that belongs to you, please contact our business office at 214-975-0460.
Records Division. The primary function of the Records Division is storage, retention, destruction, and retrieval of both electronic and manual records. The Records Division's hours of operation are Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., and Friday, 7:30-11:30 a.m.

Warrants. If an individual's citation is in warrant status, they are subject to arrest by any Texas law enforcement officer. Warrants can be cleared in one of the following ways:
- Pay the warrant in full, in person, at the Court Clerk's window.
- Post a cash bond in person at the Court Clerk's window.
- Post an attorney or surety bond in person or by mail.
Warrant payments made by mail or online will not clear the warrant until the court receives the payment. The court will usually receive your payment the following business day from the date it was paid online. Until the payment is received, the individual is still subject to arrest. Failure to appear or pay the citation by the court date assigned will incur additional fines, fees, and costs. For information regarding warrants in Little Elm, call the Warrant Officer at 214-975-0463, ext. 307, or 469-853-3844.
