Authorities from 11 different agencies interested in forming a network of warrant units in north Georgia are expected to meet Wednesday with the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

More than 50 law enforcement officers from seven sheriffs’ offices, as well as representatives from the Forsyth County District Attorney’s Office, the U.S. Marshals Service and Immigration and Customs Enforcement likely will attend.

“We realized that there was a need in north Georgia for a communication network between agencies that would help locate fugitives who may be hiding in a nearby county,” said Forsyth County Sheriff Ted Paxton.

The meeting will discuss forming an information-sharing network of authorities in north Georgia whose primary purpose is to serve arrest warrants and locate fugitives.

In addition, the meeting is expected to cover specialized training in tracking and catching fugitives.
