Warrant Division

The Warrants Division was formed in 1988. At that time one officer was assigned to handle all of the warrants issued by the local courts.  Five years later, in 1994, the Warrant Unit received, on average, 900 warrants per month. Today, the Unit receives approximately 2000 warrants per month.

The squad is also responsible for serving Orders of Protection, issued by the Mesa City Court and Mental Health Detainers.

The Warrant Unit works with a zero tolerance attitude. The Detectives travel throughout the State of Arizona picking up suspects that have been arrested by other agencies on Mesa City warrants.

The Warrants Detectives work long hours, sometimes in severe weather, locating numerous suspects on their daily list of warrants issued by the courts. They often deal with angry and uncooperative people; sometimes facing hardened criminals, escaped convicts and killers. Many of these criminals are captured with the help of the public.
