Fugitive Task Force

The Violent Fugitive Apprehension Team (VFAT) is comprised of Brockton Police
and State Police and is funded by a number of law enforcement grants.

The VFAT's efforts center on fugitives who are wanted in connection with the commission of violent felonies.

Included among the offenses for which the fugitives are wanted have been the following: murder, attempted murder, armed assault with intent to murder, armed robbery, unarmed robbery, home invasion, kidnapping, firearms offenses (both state and federal), assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, aggravated rape, indecent assault and battery on a child, drug distribution (both state and federal), witness intimidation, domestic violence, larceny, receiving a stolen motor vehicle, threats, unlawful possession of explosives with intent to injure and fugitive flight from justice.   Fugitives apprehended include adult as well as juvenile offenders.

Members of the VFAT also assist police in other jurisdictions, including federal agencies, such as the United States Marshal's Service. The Violent Fugitive Apprehension Team has proven to be a tremendous asset in the effort to track and apprehend violent fugitives in Plymouth County.
