About FLEPRU

 In May of 1987,  property recovery detectives in the Tampa Bay area, formed the first property recovery unit in the U.S.. They gathered to answer an age old problem plaguing law enforcement, "How can law enforcement increase the recovery of stolen property and place the guilty in jail?" The detectives realized that property crimes were continually increasing and the resources needed to attack this investigation focused on the thief and his acquired or stolen property. They realized the need to utilize a "Dynamic" approach which focuses on property rather than relying on the arrest of the criminal.

The Goals of the Florida Law Enforcement Property Recovery Unit

In May of 1987, a group of property recovery detectives within the Tampa Bay area, formed the first property recovery unit in the United States. They gathered in an attempt to answer an age old problem plaguing law enforcement, "How can law enforcement increase the recovery of stolen property and place the guilty in jail?"

  1. Attract FLEPRU members

    Recruit members from all municipal, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies within the state of Florida to encourage mutual cooperation.

  2. Reunite victims with their property

    Raise the percentage of recovered stolen property as well as increase the return rate to victims.

  3. Influence Legislation

    Enact legislation/lobbying to solicit new Legislation, and deliver the criminal harsher penalties, assuring the criminal does not convert stolen property to cash.

  4. Track stolen property

    Help establish an FCIC computer based tracking system to track stolen property as well as dealers of stolen property across county lines.

  5. Educate

    Provide educational conferences and seminars to the newly assigned investigator as well as the seasoned veteran.
