Manchester detective assigned full-time to federal fugitive task force
U.S. Marshal David Cargill Jr. and Manchester Police Chief David Mara, in a joint news release, said Manchester has been involved in the task force on a part-time basis since its inception in 2002.
"Being that Manchester is the largest city in the state of New Hampshire, the Marshals Fugitive Task Force has had a long-time presence in the city, but this enhanced effort will increase the presence of the task force in Manchester resulting in a more significant number of wanted fugitives being arrested," said Cargill.
Manchester, the state's largest city, also produces a large amount of felony warrants, according to the law enforcement officials.
"Combining our resources and manpower will assist in the reduction of outstanding warrants and reduce the amount of wanted felons on the streets of Manchester resulting in even safer streets," said Mara. "We want those criminals hiding out in the Queen City to know that we are coming for them. This initiative enhances and expands our long-time partnership with the U.S. Marshals."
