Detectives

The Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney is supported by ten detectives. In October of 1997 the office took over all fugitive retrieval duties for the City of Louisville and St. Matthews. In July of 2002, the Commonwealth’s Detectives also took over all fugitive and extradition duties for all of Metro Louisville formerly served by the Jefferson County Police. In addition to these vital extradition duties, in some circumstances they assist in case investigations. The detectives also serve subpoenas, warrants and locate witnesses for the prosecution.
