Fugitive Apprehension Unit

Fugitive Apprehension Unit (FAU)
The Fugitive Apprehension Unit conducts investigations to locate parole absconders, and conducts missions to capture them and return them to incarceration.

The Fugitive Apprehension Unit members are deputized by the U.S. Marshals Service, with the authority to make arrests outside of New Jersey and return the offender to New Jersey through the extradition process. As members of the U.S. Marshals Service New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force, the State Parole Board's Fugitive Apprehension Unit members also aid in the investigations and arrests of fugitives sought by other law enforcement agencies.

Any individuals who have information about a parole absconder are asked to call the State Parole Board tipline, at 1-800-668-7025, or submit your tip online using the information below.
