Crimes Against Property
Property crimes are the most common offenses reported in Grapevine. The Property Crimes Unit is tasked with gathering information, interviewing victims and potential suspects, collecting evidence, arresting offenders, recovering property and facilitating the preparation of property crime cases for court prosecution.

Detectives accomplish these tasks through the analysis of current crime trends, the uses of proven investigative techniques, modern police technology and the forensics sciences. Through this multi-faceted approach to investigations, criminal suspects are identified and apprehended. 

Detectives strive to contact all crime victims, including suspended cases. A suspended case is an offense where there are no existing investigative leads. By contacting the victims of suspended cases, victims are notified of the case status and are urged to provide any additional information that may change the investigation's status to an active case.

Investigative Assistant

The Property Crimes unit also has an investigative assistant. This civilian position assists the detectives with their case investigations. Their duties include, but are not limited to: reviewing surveillance video footage for investigative leads, obtaining follow up information, checking numerous databases for leads, preparing photo lineups, and preparing crime bulletins.
