The Property Crimes Unit of the Criminal Investigations Division investigates crimes such as robbery, fraud, forgery, insufficient funds checks, burglary, grand thefts and internet fraud. The Property Crimes Unit is staffed by 7 investigators and 1 community service officer. Our mission is to recover stolen property and hold accountable those responsible for committing those crimes. With help from the local community members and our community service officers, the Property Crimes Unit monitors the sale of stolen property through pawn shops and recycled metal businesses, in order to identify thieves using legitimate businesses to fence their stolen goods. Detectives from the Property Crimes Unit also maintain partnerships with area business owners in a proactive attempt to reduce inventory loss from job sites and through employee theft.
