Lieutenant Rincon’s investigative experience includes being lead detective and supervising a range of investigations including homicides, robberies, sexual assaults, major assaults, domestic violence cases, child abuse and gang crimes. While under his leadership, detectives from the Domestic Violence Unit increased their physical arrests 230% over a two year period, decreased individual caseloads by 80%, and created a Domestic Violence Repeat-Offender Database that gave first responders the ability to access an offender’s criminal history and convictions while still at the scene of a reported DV crime. These initiatives contributed to a 7% decrease in domestic violence in the City of Scottsdale in 2008,which was the first annual decrease in domestic violence incidents in over a decade.

He also specializes in domestic violence dynamics and fatal and near-fatal strangulation investigations and the use of Body- Worn Cameras in criminal investigations.
