The Columbia County Sheriffs Office is responsible for the service of all the Bench Warrants issued by the Court of Common Pleas and the four (4) District Magistrates.
This is one of our most dangerous tasks because we go right to the door of the last known address. Every precaution must be taken for a successful apprehension. This is where training plays an important part of the functions we perform.
We follow leads provided from county residents and local law enforcement agencies. Warrants involve probation violations, criminal violations, non support issues and PFAs (Protection From Abuse).
The Sheriffs Office is also responsible for the completion of Fugitive From Justice extraditions for Columbia County. When a fugitive is found outside the county and or state, two deputies are assigned the task of retrieving the fugitive and bringing them back to Columbia County.
Your help is needed to apprehend persons with outstanding bench warrants. The warrant list below is accurate to the date and time as published. The warrant list is informative only. If you have any information on these individuals contact the Columbia County Sheriffs Office. Prior to taking action, validity must be confirmed by Columbia County Sheriff's Office.
