The Fugitive Squad additionally investigates and apprehends persons wanted locally and nationally, and is an active participant in the United States Marshal Service New York / New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force. The Sheriff's Office is responsible to make every attempt to apprehend the individuals on these warrants. New Bench Warrants issued each year number in the thousands.
