The Property Crimes Unit is responsible for following up on the initial efforts of PATROL by investigating crimes in which the primary motive is financial gain. These types of offenses account for the majority of the crimes committed within our community and include residential, commercial and vehicle burglary, theft, arson, vandalism and various other property related offenses.
Though the primary focus of the Unit is to recover stolen property and seek successful prosecution of the offender(s) related to these cases after the fact, investigators in the Unit often employ proven proactive strategies during the course of their investigations to deter and/or prevent these types of crimes from re-occurring in the future.
The Unit consists of three highly trained investigators with over 64 combined years of Law Enforcement experience. Notwithstanding their general responsibilities, each investigator in the unit is tasked with specialized details within their field; with these types of unique cases respectively assigned based on the investigator's particular emphasis or specialty. These include:
