The Violent Crime Unit (VCU) was created to address violence within our community, with a special focus on crimes that are committed using weapons. The unit works in conjunction with the Vice and Criminal detectives to identify individuals who are involved in gun crimes in Pine Bluff.

The VCU uses a combination of case files and interviews to identify, develop profiles regarding certain persons who are suspected of committing crimes involving the use of weapons. With this intelligence in hand, the VCU locates, tracks and apprehends these individuals for questioning or arrest, depending on what is known about their activities.
