Chattanooga Police Department Launches Property Crimes Facebook Page

Wednesday, September 19, 2018
The Chattanooga Police Department Property Crimes division is now on social media with the "Chattanooga Police Property Crimes Division" Facebook page. 

The CPD Property Crimes Unit includes Burglary, Fraud, Pawn, and Robbery. The purpose of the page is to share information about suspects that have not yet been arrested, identify current property crime trends in Chattanooga, and offer property crime prevention tips.
 Property Crimes Investigators will update the page regularly and partner with organizations such as Chattanooga-area Crime Stoppers to encourage community members to report information they may have about ongoing investigations. 

"We want to be able to alert the public on property crimes that happened recently and the suspects or persons of interest we are looking for," said Property Crimes Acting Lieutenant Kevin Akins. "We know that when police and community members work together we can solve crimes quicker, making our community a safer place to live."

The department does have a Facebook page, but uses the platform for all CPD-related matters. The Chattanooga Police Department Property Crimes Facebook page is intended to serve as an additional tool to assist in solving, reducing, and preventing property crimes. 

Community members are still encouraged to report property crimes by calling 911 or (423) 698-2525 (non-emergency). Tips can be submitted privately on the Property Crimes Facebook page or through the Chattanooga Police Mobile App that's available in iOS or Android app stores.
