The Kendall County Sheriff’s Office has one deputy assigned to work with the Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force (GLRFTF) which is comprised of multiple law enforcement agencies working under the United States Marshals Service for the purpose of locating violent and high risk fugitive offenders. The task force focuses primarily on apprehending wanted violent crime suspects accused of crimes such as murder, sexual assault, rape, child pornography, robbery, and aggravated assault. As a member of the GLRFTF, the deputy is given the necessary training and equipment provided by the United States Marshals to track down and locate these fugitives.
The longer a fugitive is not in custody, the greater the likelihood that he or she will commit another crime to further prevent apprehension. With the assistance of the GLRFTF, these fugitives can be safely and quickly apprehended making Kendall County and the surrounding area safer for its citizens. Participation in this unit has led to the development of various programs to seek wanted offenders in Kendall County. A Fugitive Friday Facebook post is added to the Kendall County Sheriff's Office Facebook page every Friday. The Sheriff's Office also maintains a Kendall County's Most Wanted list that is also posted to social media and has led to multiple apprehensions.
