the investigation of major crimes. Through this cooperation, both units
operate efficiently to apprehend offenders and resolve criminal cases.

citizen complaints and Patrol Officers. Detectives develop information
designed to reduce criminal activity in the community. This is often

arises from anonymous tips or e-mail. Crimes such as theft, auto theft,
robbery, identity theft, burglary and even fraudulent use of computers
are often investigated weekly by the Burbank Police Departmentís

request you be cognizant of suspicious autos or persons in your
neighborhood. You, too, are the eyes and ears of your Police Department.

Suburban Major Crimes Taskforce which is made up of over 50 agencies.

in the Southwest Major Case Unit, which primarily investigates violent
felony or property crimes.
