Warrant Records Explained

What are warrants? Warrants are court orders that allow law enforcement officials to arrest and detain a person for a specified period of time. A warrant may be issued based on several underlying circumstances which will vary according to state law. Some warrants are issued based on an arrested person’s failure to appear at an arraignment, while others are issued based on allegations of a crime. If you were arrested today, you would probably have some knowledge of whether or not you have a warrant issued against you.

How do I access warrant records in Ware County Georgia? Warrants can be requested from the clerk of court in the county where the arrest was made. You can usually do this yourself by visiting the clerk’s office or by contacting the local police department.

What are the different types of warrants? Warrants can be associated with multiple offenses. The most common type of warrant is a violation of a law that makes it a crime for a person to own a gun or other weapon. Other types of warrants may be for suspicion of crimes such as murder, sexual abuse, robbery and grand theft. A number of states also allow law enforcement officers to issue a “knock and alert” warrant, which allows an officer to knock on a door to let a person in, but does not require them to arrest the person.

Do I need a warrant to search or arrest a person? No, a peace officer has the same authority to search or arrest a person without a warrant as a state police officer has when looking for someone on a federal or state level. State and federal laws don’t differentiate between peace officers and private citizens, so anyone can be searched or arrested for any reason at any time. However, a warrant will most likely be issued if a person is suspected of committing a crime or of assisting a criminal offense. An outstanding warrant or one that has been revoked is also subject to arrest.

If a person was arrested for suspicion of a crime, but was later found innocent, does the warrant still exist? Not necessarily. In some states, a person does not have to be legally convicted in order to have a warrant issued for their arrest. Warrant records do not always reflect whether or not a person has been legally convicted.

How are warrant searches handled by the courts? Depending on the jurisdiction, warrants may be issued based on probable cause that a person has committed a crime, or based simply on suspicion that a person has violated a law. Warrant searches typically occur during routine stops at airports, at major thoroughfares and at residences. They may also be used to prevent illegal dumping of waste by private parties. Warrant searches are generally considered a violation of a person’s constitutional rights. In some jurisdictions, a person who questions their warrant to show that they do not have a lawful right to be searched or arrested may show up in court with a missing warrant.
