Warrant Squad

The Suffolk County Sheriff's Office Warrant Bureau is located in the Family Court Building of the John P. Cohalan Court Complex located at 400 Carleton Avenue, Central Islip, New York. The Sheriff's Warrant Bureau derives its legal authority from Article XVII of the Suffolk County Charter, pursuant to Article 8, §400 and Article 17, §650 of the New York State County Law, New York State Family Court Act and Article 1.20 of the New York State Criminal Procedure Law.

The Warrant Bureau consists of six sections, each with distinctive areas of responsibility.

1) Family Offense/Abuse & Neglect Section
2) Juvenile Section.
3) General Services Section
4) Sheriff's Warrant Apprehension Program (Child Support)
5) Criminal Warrants Section

Each Section has Deputy Sheriff Investigators whose primary responsibilities are the tasks of that Section, however all Deputy Sheriff Investigators work with each other to insure that assignments of higher priority are carried out in that manner.

The Warrant Bureau, on a regular basis, assists all police agencies in Suffolk County, including district, town and villages, the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, as well as Nassau County and New York City Police and Sheriff Departments. The Warrant Bureau receives requests from many other New York State agencies regarding individual wanted by those agencies who currently reside in Suffolk County. We also receive Fugitive from Justice Warrants from various agencies throughout the United States. Individuals who are arrested as a Fugitive from Justice are arraigned in Suffolk County courts and held until the wanting agency arranges inmate transportation.

The Warrant Bureau also provides assistance to US DOJ Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) with the execution of search warrants, the United States Marshal Service (USMS) Felony Task Force, with manpower provided for fugitive warrant sweeps.

Members of the Warrant Bureau are assigned to various ancillary commands in the Sheriff’s Office. These commands include; Marine Bureau, Dive Team, Bicycle Squad, Sheriff’s Tactical Response Team, Honor Guard, Sheriff’s Executive Security Detail and the Motorcycle Unit.
