Fugitive Warrants Unit

Home > Departments > C.C.S.P.D. >Special Investigations Division >Fugitive Warrants Unit

The Sheriff’s Police Fugitive Warrants Unit is responsible for all criminal warrants lodged in Cook County.  This is a daunting task with an average of 40,000 active warrants at any one time. 

Fugitive Warrants investigators are specially trained in extradition law and receive specialized training, exceeding Homeland Security standards, to fly while armed in order to perform their duties.  Many investigators are members of the U.S. Marshal’s Great Lakes Regional Task Force, and as such have been issued Special Deputy U.S. Marshal credentials, enabling them to cross state lines in pursuit of fugitives.

More than 3,559 wanted subjects were apprehended in 2011.
