On June 1, 2016 the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, under the authority of court order and later local rule 1907.2, which became effective August 9, 2016; created the District Court Warrant Control & Apprehension Unit.  This unit is responsible for overseeing the service of all non-criminal docketed Magisterial District Court Warrants.    The goal of this unit is to provide oversight and control of the warrants, while maintaining a cost effective service solution for our citizens. 

If you received a letter from us:

Please contact the Magisterial District Court Office stated in the letter.  We have NO authority to remove the warrant. You must contact the Magisterial District Court Office.
