Criminal Apprehension Unit
The primary objective of the Criminal Apprehension Unit (CAU) is to locate and arrest subjects wanted for felony offenses that either have warrants, or are being sought by law enforcement. CAU is made up of personnel trained in Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) that can provide tactical support to investigative units when serving search warrants or executing a high risk operation. The Unit routinely assists the Narcotics and Human Trafficking Units with surveillance, security, and arrests. They often work with the Gang Unit when conducting surveillance and suspect research. Critical to the Unit’s success is the relationships they maintain with outside agencies, as criminals commonly cross jurisdictional boundaries.
