One of the daily functions of the Detective Unit involves arrest warrant enforcement. Arrest warrants are received on a regular basis and assigned to teams of two detectives for execution. Warrants are received from Superior and Municipal Courts, as well as from federal, state, county, and local law enforcement agencies.
Arrest warrants for the following types of offences are routinely executed by the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office Detective Unit: Violation of Probation, Violation of Litigants Rights (Non-Support), Failure to Appear, State Parole Violations, Military Desertion (AWOL), fugitives from other states, Escape Warrants, and Civil Arrest Warrants. The Sheriff's Warrant Unit has a partnership with the United States Marshals Service NY/NJ Regional Fugitive Task Force.
