The Tulsa Police Department is taking a hands-on approach to preventing financial crimes.

Detectives from the Financial Crimes Unit went door-to-door Monday, visiting local businesses to tell them about financial crimes and what to do if their business becomes a victim.

Financial crimes includes things like forged checks, fraud or embezzlement by their own employees. Usually, detectives are behind the scenes, but they'll be out visiting more businesses all week.

"We're going to educate the business community how we handle the cases, and what could help us help them," said Detective Matthias Wicks.

They also handed out tip sheets to help businesses know what sort of evidence they need for investigations.
