The anti-terrorism efforts over the last few years have had an impact on every law enforcement agency in the country.  The events of September 11, 2001 have had no more serious impact on the workload of the Sheriff's Office than in the Criminal Division.  Over the past few years, the Criminal Division has worked closely with State, Local and Federal agencies facilitating the exchange of information, and ensuring the safety of law enforcement officers and the public.

In addition to these new responsibilities the Criminal Division continues to perform its primary function of locating and apprehending fugitives from justice, and persons wanted on Superior Court charges, and, the location and apprehension of those parents attempting to avoid their child support obligations.

The Criminal Division also continues to coordinate all criminal extradition activity for the County, working closely with the Hillsborough County Attorney's Office.  The Criminal Division also regularly brings Fugitive From Justice charges against prisoners at the Hillsborough County Department of Corrections for out of State agencies.  In addition, the Criminal Division has continued to receive requests for assistance from other law enforcement agencies in the areas of internal investigations as well as for criminal activity.

The increase in workload at the Courts has also had a direct impact on the Criminal Division, as we continue to see increasing number of arrest orders.

There can be no disputing that the workload of this division has increased, and the backlog of work continues to grow.  Despite this increase this division has not had an increase in personnel since 1988.
