Philadelphia Sheriff’s Office Launches Fugitive Warrant Unit Priority List on PhillySheriff.com
Philadelphia, PA – The Philadelphia Sheriff’s Office, Sheriff Rochelle Bilal and the Warrant Unit will announce the release of the Warrant Unit Priority List on its website, PhillySheriff.com. We continue to encourage every Philadelphian to help us get these fugitives out of your homes, off the streets, and safely into custody.
The Philadelphia Sheriff’s Office has found success responding to tips from the community, as well as coordinating the surrender of fugitives voluntarily. We need the continued support and courage of the community to apprehend these individuals.
We cannot afford to put law enforcement, fugitives, and their families in harm’s way during operations to bring those who are wanted into custody. The Fugitive Warrant Unit Priority List will make it easier for community members to identify individuals in their friend or family circles who are currently fugitives and bring about an opportunity to avoid danger during the arrest.
“The Warrant Unit Priority List is part of our community outreach strategy to get fugitives in custody safely, without incident, by encouraging them to turn themselves in. If you know someone who is wanted, let’s continue to provide tips and work together to reduce violence in our community.”
– Sheriff Rochelle Bilal.
