Detectives assigned to Property Crimes are responsible for investigating all types of property thefts (including auto and identity), burglaries, fraud/financial crime, and vandalism. Due to the fact each of these crimes have elements that are particular to them, property detectives must develop an expertise in each of their fields.
Through the use of crime analysis, networking with allied agencies, or with the help of citizen information, profiles can be developed to potentially identify suspects or predict their future criminal behavior. This information can assist in effective crime suppression and/or apprehension efforts.
