Season 1 | Season 2

This TLC show also plays on the Discovery Channel and is filmed in Las Vegas, a town like no other, and millions of people come and go each year. However, mixed in with this influx of law-abiding citizens looking for a good time are a number of fugitives: Criminals on the run love to head to Sin City. Standing tall and ready to track them down are the U.S. Marshals Nevada Fugitive Investigative Strike Team, North Las Vegas Police Department S.W.A.T., and the self described “Bounty Hunters” of Gator Bail Enforcement. Fugitive Strike Force features the most exciting and engaging stories from these three very different fugitive hunting units, as they investigate, track and arrest fugitives, suspects and criminals on the run in Las Vegas. It's all real, no reenactments. It has a Cops feel to it and the scenes with the US Marshals are usually very exciting. They lie in wait looking for the suspects to show up and pounce. The bounty hunters are real characters, biker looking guys with no sense of fear.
