This unit is responsible for the apprehension of fugitives who are the subject of Union County Bench Warrants. These fugitives are wanted by the courts for various reasons which include bail jumping, violation of probation, failure to appear for scheduled court appearances, or domestic non- support. New Bench Warrants issued each year number in the thousands.
The execution of any arrest warrant is an extremely hazardous task. Sheriff’s Officers put at great risk when they follow leads and pursue fugitives into their own environment. Early morning raids have proven to be an effective tool in apprehending fugitives when they are most vulnerable to arrest. Our warrant teams do not restrict their activity to towns located in Union County and follow a fugitive’s trail across the state.
