During the past several years, the City of Cerritos and neighboring cities have seen an increase in daytime residential burglaries. In response to this crime trend, Cerritos Station has recently reallocated and dedicated new law enforcement resources for the sole purpose of preventing, apprehending and prosecuting burglaries in the City of Cerritos. The Cerritos Station Residential Burglary Team has been formed and is currently deployed within the city. The team consists of experienced patrol deputies, detectives and supervisors who are solely dedicated to abating residential burglaries. Their plan encompasses strategies that historically have proven successful in reducing the number of burglaries. The Residential Burglary Team has incorporated educating the public and station personnel regarding crime trends to target this ongoing issue.

In the first week of operation, the team arrested two individuals for residential burglary. In addition, another male, who was arrested in Orange County, was identified as being in possession of property taken in a Cerritos burglary. Subsequent investigation by the Residential Burglary Team has confirmed that the male was responsible for an additional 15 burglaries in Cerritos.
