Property Crimes Unit


Property Crimes detectives conduct investigations regarding burglary and theft. The unit is comprised of one sergeant and seven investigators. These investigators utilize pawnshop related software to identify frequent pawners and search for stolen property taken in by second hand dealers. These investigators also participate in directed patrols in neighborhoods that are experiencing a rise in property crimes.


The Property Crimes Unit is focused on arresting those committing burglaries and thefts. They conduct surveillances in targeted areas and participate in distributing anti-theft information packets and performing Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) inspections for home and business owners.
