Captain Lillian L. Carranza is the commanding officer of Commercial Crimes Division (CCD).

She assumed command of this division in 2018.  Commercial Crimes Division was established in May 2003 with the merger of Burglary Auto Theft Division (BAD) and Financial Crimes Division (FCD). 

CCD is comprised of:
  • Financial Crimes Sections (Metro and Valley);
  • Complex Financial Crimes Section (White Collar, Real Estate and Elder Fiduciary);
  • Burglary Auto Theft Section;
  • Cyber Crimes Section (Forensics and Investigations);
  • Intellectual Property Crimes Unit (Pirated and Illegal sales of counterfeit goods);
  • Task Force for Regional Auto Theft Prevention (TRAP County-Wide Task Force);
  • Major Theft Task Force (Federal Task Force); Robbery, burglary and theft that involves organized South American Theft Groups (SATG).

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).
