The Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section's ( VFAS) top priority is to identify and arrest the most violent criminals. These individuals, by the virtue of their life-styles, are career criminals and responsible for committing multiple crimes. Their arrest and incarceration will significantly reduce the crime rate in Massachusetts.
The Fugitive Section provides assistance to interstate and intrastate investigations concerning escapees and other fugitives from justice. VFAS maintains constant channels of communication with law enforcement agencies throughout the state and the nation and we function as liaison among agencies with a common purpose regarding the apprehension of fugitives.
