The Fugitive Apprehension Unit investigates the location of fugitives or escapees and coordinates their capture. The primary focus is to apprehend subjects with serious violent crimes such as Georgia’s “Seven Deadly Sin”, (Murder, Rape, Kidnapping, Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Battery, Armed Robbery, and Aggravated Child Molestation), as well as subjects with outstanding misdemeanor, felony, contempt of court, and probation violation warrants. In addition, Fugitive Deputies are tasked with responding to emergency calls, courthouse security, serving civil process papers, temporary protective orders, subpoenas, transporting mental patients to designated locations, funeral escorts, and any other law enforcement responsibilities.
The Court Services Unit falls under Fugitive Apprehension and is charged with security at the Spalding County courthouse, inmate movement, courtroom security for all county courts, protecting judges, witnesses, and jurors, and maintaining the holding area for inmates awaiting appearances or trials.
