History

Since the beginning, the PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) formerly known as the Criminal Investigation Service (CIS) of the then Philippine constabulary (PC) during the Martial Law years, has been at the forefront of the country's formidable war against all forms of crimes and criminality

From January 19, 1950, the CIDG like any other operating arm of the Philippines National Police, has undergone changes in its nomenclature, i.e.., from CIS to Criminal Investigation Service Command (CISC) to Crimiinal Investigation Command (CIC) to Criminal Investigation Group (CIG) and finally, the Criminal Investigation Detection Group (CIDG)

All its past Chief and Directors, including the present Command Group, have by far, contributed wholeheartedly to the fulfillment of its vision, mission and function at the extreme sacrifice of life and limb. Their combined efforts have made the CIDG a formidable and vaunted fighting until that it is today.
