Warrant Apprehension Unit partnerships

The Sheriff's Office continues its partnership with the Juvenile Criminal Apprehension Team (JCAT) initiative along with Hennepin County Community Corrections (Probation Services). We also has an ongoing partnership with the Minnesota Violent Crime/Fugitive Task Force (MVC/FTF). The primary objective is to significantly contribute to a reduction of serious violent crime by locating and arresting the most violent fugitives. 
 
The Suburban Juvenile Initiative (SJI) started field operations in 2008. SJI’s apprehends juveniles with arrest warrants. Typically each year, SJI made several hundred arrests and dozens of other juveniles report to the Hennepin County Juvenile Detention Center after being actively sought by SJI.
 
A deputy is assigned to the Minnesota Fugitive Task Force, a high-profile, multi-agency team that tracks down and arrests the Twin Cities' most violent fugitives.
