NBC4 is collaborating with the U.S. Marshals Service for an innovative program called “Warrant Watch.” We invite viewers to join us as we work together to make our communities safer by apprehending fugitives with outstanding warrants.
How Warrant Watch works
Every first and third Monday of the month, NBC4 airs a special segment featuring one or more fugitives targeted for arrest by the U.S. Marshals Service that week. These segments will provide crucial information about the individuals on the run, their alleged crimes, and any other relevant details to help our viewers stay informed.
When the U.S. Marshals Service is prepared to execute an arrest, they will notify an agency representative, who will then reach out to NBC4. Upon receiving this notification, a reporter-photographer team will quickly mobilize and head to the scene. Arrests can occur at any time, so this coverage will ensure viewers will receive up-to-the-minute updates on important developments.
