What Are Warrant Records?

Warrant Records are an important part of the American civil society. A Warrant Records Search can be accessed through various web sites. These sites offer access to some of the most extensive public arrest records and court documents on the Internet. If you have any questions about a specific person or any arrest records, you can easily locate the information you need and have it delivered directly to your office.

A Warrant Records Search can be executed for any legal purpose by any legal authority, including law enforcement agencies and other departments of the government, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement. For example, law enforcement agencies routinely perform Searches for Wanted Persons, sex offenders, missing persons, criminals and even convicts. The purpose of such a Search is to find the real identity of the person, to prevent the escape of a dangerous person or to track down a person wanted for an alleged crime. Similarly, National Crime Information Center (NCIC) performs warrant searches that enable law enforcement agencies to track down fugitives from justice.

Warrant Records searches may also be executed by the private sectors. Companies such as banks, airlines, utility companies, real estate agents and others maintain records of their clients’ activities. They use such information to prevent fraud and other abuses. In some instances, people who apply for a mortgage or other financing applications are required to provide credit information in order to facilitate the process. Banks use this information to run a record search prior to approving a loan.

Warrant Records are different from typical employee records in that they contain detailed details of a person’s criminal history. While an employee’s records are made available for viewing to the public, a Warrant Record contains only basic personal information. Criminal records include arrests and disposition; criminal charges, judgments, confinement orders, jail time, dates of incarceration and other relevant details. A Warrant Record may contain any or all of these items, as well as any felony charges. For example, if a person is suspected of committing a crime after notifying the police but before being taken into custody, this could be considered grounds for conducting a Warrant Record search.

By obtaining a copy of a warrant records, a person can check to see if their arrest was lawful. This is helpful in determining whether the police had probable cause to arrest the individual. Warrant records may also be used in court, when hiring a new employee or when attempting to recover stolen property.

When a Warrant is obtained, it remains in the custody of the local police department. They may allow an interested party to obtain a copy through a court order. This provides an opportunity for the person to check to see whether their arrest was unlawful. If it was not, it provides a way to clear the name and allow the person to move on with their life.
