Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST)

Arresting the Most Violent Felons in Southern Ohio

The Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) is a multi-jurisdictional law enforcement organization created to arrest the most violent felons in the Southern District of Ohio. Strike teams are headquartered in the largest metropolitan areas:

  • Columbus
  • Dayton
  • Cincinnati

About the SOFAST Program

The SOFAST is comprised of agents, officers, and deputies from multiple federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies. Each member of SOFAST is deputized as a special deputy U.S. marshal, thereby giving each member the ability to travel in an effort to apprehend the worst criminal offenders.

The SOFAST emphasizes identifying and pursuing fugitives who have been documented as gang members and sharing gang intelligence with local law enforcement. The goal is to arrest the most violent offenders and gain the trust and cooperation of our citizens to help combat the violence stemming from gangs, guns, and drugs.
