It is the mission of the Warrant Team to safely and aggressively target and seek out violent and dangerous offenders and career criminals who are wanted. The intended outcome of this effort is to increase public safety by locating and apprehending such violent fugitives. Like other law enforcement operations teamwork is essential to fugitive apprehension. The team frequently assists and works alongside the U.S. Marshals Service, FBI, Secret Service, ICE, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, other local agencies as well as units within the Columbia Police Department. The success of the Warrant Team is not possible without support and information from the public. The Warrant Team’s mission also includes the entering, updating, and archiving, of all warrants and summons.
