The Warrant Unit is part of the Special Operations Section and is staffed by sworn police officers and an Office Associate. The Warrant Unit works in conjunction with the Chesapeake Sheriff's Office, Fugitive Squad, and maintains records of all the summonses, warrants, and detention orders it receives using a departmental database, the Virginia Criminal Information Network (VCIN) and the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) computer systems. While any officer may serve criminal papers, the Warrant Unit is specifically tasked to actively search for wanted persons. The Warrant Unit officers serve a high percentage of the criminal papers they receive from the magistrates, courts and other jurisdictions.
