Phoenix PD, ATF team up against kidnappings

Six federal agents are now part of the Phoenix Police Department’s Home Invasion and Kidnapping Enforcement unit.

Phoenix police and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives recently combined forces as law enforcement deals with home invasions and kidnappings.

The Arizona Republic reports police and federal authorities think joining forces will help them handle a large number of kidnapping and home invasion cases more efficiently.

The move comes as U.S. Justice Department auditors review Phoenix’s kidnapping statistics used to secure $1.7 million in grant money, which would support a squad that investigates kidnappings.
