Property Crimes Unit
Acting Sergeant Darrin Rafferty and five (5) Detectives complete follow up investigation of crimes against property to include burglary - auto, residential and commercial, theft, auto theft, vandalism, identity theft and a variety of other types of fraud. The work of these team members often results in search warrants, probation/parole searches and surveillances when appropriate. Team members work with a variety of other law enforcement agencies - neighboring and beyond - to develop and exchange information, work leads, recover stolen property and make significant arrests.
Property Crime Detectives communicate and coordinate with other Divisions within BPD and regularly participate in the CARS - Crime Analysis and Response and Compstat meetings.
