Fugitive Apprehension

    The Fugitive Apprehension Unit consists of five sworn deputies. Fugitive Apprehension investigates the location of fugitives or escapees and coordinates resource for their capture. The primary focus is to apprehend subjects with serious violent crimes such as Georgia's "Seven Deadly Sins", (Murder, Rape, Kidnapping, Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Battery, Armed Robbery, and Aggravated Child Molestation), as well as those with outstanding misdemeanor, felony, contempt of court, and probation violation warrants. Fugitive Apprehension Deputies respond to calls, work courthouse security, serve civil process papers, temporary protective orders, subpoenas, transport mental patients to designated locations, funeral escorts, and any other law enforcement responsibilities.

To search for outstanding Warrants, use the online services portal Sheriff2Citizen.
