Montana Violent Offender Task Force

Purpose: The Montana Violent Offender Task Force was established in January 2005 with a stated mission to apprehend persons wanted for felony crimes with a focus on violent offenders. Task force operations began in the Billings office and have since expanded to include the offices in Missoula and Great Falls. Task force officers cleared over 2,500 felony cases in the first five years.

Ninety-seven percent of those cases were cleared within the first sixty days after the warrant had been received. In 2008 and 2009, task force officers set new records for cases cleared. They cleared 635 cases in 2009. The task force officers have apprehended fugitives all across Montana, in several other states, and in other nations.
