Fugitive Warrants

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF A WARRANT:

  • Turn yourself in to the Palm Beach County Jail at 3228 Gun Club Road, WPB, FL
  • The jail accepts bonds on warrants 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • You may bring the full amount of the bond to the jail or make arrangements with a Bail Bond Agent. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office cannot and will not recommend a Bail Bond Agent; please refer to the telephone book or internet.
  • Cash bonds in the full amount of the warrant are accepted in cash, cashier’s check or money order only. No personal checks are accepted. Cashier’s checks and money orders should be made payable to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

The Fugitive Warrants Unit has one lieutenant, one sergeant, nine detectives, two civilian supervisors, fourteen warrants specialists and one criminal analyst. The unit maintains all current and active warrants, currently over 53,000, which are filed by all Law Enforcement agencies in Palm Beach County. The Fugitive Warrants Unit is also responsible for receiving, processing, entering, removing and validating each warrant that is received from the Clerk of Courts, in PALMS, FCIC and NCIC. Not all traffic and misdemeanor warrants are validated and put into FCIC / NCIC. A file is created for each warrant and the original is maintained in the file. When a warrant is executed or unexecuted (recalled by a judge and/or the Clerk’s Office), the original warrant has to be taken out of the file and sent back to the Clerk’s Office.
