Captain Bill Williams
is the commanding officer of Commercial Crimes Division (CCD).

He assumed command of this division in 2007.  Commercial Crimes Division was established in May 2003 with the merger of Burglary Auto Theft Division (BAD) and Financial Crimes Division (FCD).  The division is divided into seven sections: Burglary Special Section; Commercial Auto Theft Section; Fraud Section; Metropolitan Financial, West and Valley Financial Sections; Taskforce for Regional Auto Theft Prevention; and the Interstate Theft Task Force (ITTF) and Organized Theft Unit (OUT).

    Note:   Please click over the above underlined titles for expanded information or investigative responsibilities.

Commercial Crimes Division can be categorized into two main areas of investigation.  The Burglary/Auto Theft Sections provide logistical, technical and investigative support to Area detectives, and has primary investigative responsibility on certain select burglary, theft, auto theft and robbery crimes on a citywide basis. In addition, these sections are responsible for enforcing state law and Police Commission rules and regulations governing pawnshops, junk dealers and any other business handling secondhand merchandise.

The Financial Crimes sections are tasked with the citywide investigative responsibility for all forgery and fraud related white-collar crimes. The financial sections are divided into three sections: Metropolitan Forgery, Valley/ West Los Angeles Forgery, and Fraud.

In 2009, in an effort to build a crime fighting partnership with the focus on the sharing of real time information for businesses and private sector, Captain Bill Williams, formed the Los Angeles Area Organized Retail Crimes Association (LAAORCA).
