The Warrants Unit investigates, locates and apprehends fugitive probationers through the execution of bench warrants and arrest warrants.

When someone sentenced to probation fails to adhere to the conditions of the sentence, a violation of probation report is submitted to inform the court.

The prompt execution of arrest warrants serves to deter probationers from failing to comply with the conditions of their probation sentence. The unit uses the latest information technology to apprehend wanted probationers. The Warrant Unit works intimately with other law enforcement agencies to ensure that offenders are apprehended as soon as possible.

By having a full time Warrant Unit, Westchester has allowed the department to give a higher priority to probation warrant cases than previously experienced in the county.
