The Westchester County Police Warrant-Fugitive Unit (WFU) locates individuals who are the subject of a Westchester County Criminal Court Warrant. The warrants are issued for individuals facing felony, misdemeanor and other charges.  

In addition, the unit investigates and enforces warrants issued by local Family Courts. WFU detectives are called upon to represent the county in extradition cases:

  • Where the defendant is apprehended in our county and is wanted by another state; or
  • Where the defendant is apprehended in another state and is wanted by Westchester County or any of its municipalities. 

The WFU also assumes transport duties for prisoners, who are under the province of the Westchester County Supreme, County and Family Courts.
