Burglary Unit

The Burglary Unit was started in 2011 to take a holistic approach to solving burglaries and coordinating resources.   When an officer takes a report, it is referred to the Unit for evaluation.  The Unit, which is made up of a group of detectives, will actively investigate cases where there are viable leads, such as fingerprints, eyewitnesses, or DNA. The Unit coordinates cases where it is obvious that a string of burglaries was completed by the same persons or group.  The Burglary Unit is also responsible for commerical burglary investigations.

The Burglary Unit also follows up with victims, and refers them to the Senior Locks program if they qualify, and also provides them information on how to avoid being victimized again.   For more information on burglary prevention both residential and commercial, click on the following link:
