So last post was about Extradition and how it works when it comes to Law enforcement. That being said, the topic of discussion on this post will be concerning the next part of that Extradition process. Specifically, the part where the offender is in custody by Law enforcement and the warrant has been approved for Extradition via the original wanting agency.

LEOs in contact with the offender will detain him/her until it is determined whether or not the wanting agency wants to Extradite the subject. Once the agency confirms that Extradition is approved, the offender that is being detained by LEOs would be taken into custody and a copy of the warrant would be faxed to the agency taking the offender into custody for service. 

The offender would be arrested on a Warrant Service, taken before a Judge/Duty Officer/Magistrate, and then committed to the local jail facility pending being extradited into the custody of the original wanting agency.

The actual transport of the offender is determined by both involved agencies, majority of the time the offender and paperwork are transported via the agency holding custody to the state line or jurisdictional boundary where they would meet the wanting agency for the transfer. 

The offender and paperwork associated with him/her would be given to the wanting agencies LEOs and transported to their jail facility referencing the crimes committed within their jurisdiction.

Extradition and Warrant Services are common in Law enforcement, LEOs will do them often throughout their careers. Some Warrant Services won’t be from another state, but from another jurisdiction nearby. This process is how law enforcement officials communicate and transport offenders throughout the country to face justice for their crimes no matter where they are committed.

The Warrant Service…
