An [[Auror]]'s job is to hunt down and capture [[Dark Wizards]], once a criminal is captured they are generally handed over to the authorities. It is not uncommon for criminals to resist arrest; some choose to fight to the death rather than let themselves be captured, such as Death Eater [[Evan Rosier]].

The Ministry also enlists them to guard high profile targets such as Harry Potter, during the [[1996-1997 school year|1996-1997 school term]] and the British [[Prime Minister]] who had an [[Kingsley Shacklebolt|Auror bodyguard]], posing as his secretary, to protect him against the possibility that [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] might take control of him, to gain access to various [[Muggle]] resources at the highest level.
