The Purpose and Need of Warrant Records

Warrant records are one of the most important public records that are maintained and kept by the various law enforcement agencies of the state of Indiana. These records are basically comprised of the personal details of a person who has been arrested for any type of crime whether it is felony or misdemeanor. This detail is needed for various legal proceedings such as investigations, searches, and trials. In the case of an arrest, the arrest warrant will serve as evidence for the prosecution in pursuing the case for conviction. The arrest warrant is a document from the police that states the reasons as well as the name of the person who was arrested. If there is no record of the warrant being active, then it is said to be invalid and may affect the proceedings in some way or another.

Warrant can be issued for several reasons depending on the gravity of the crime that has been committed. Common reasons are that a person might be accused of a crime that does not warrant a formal arrest. They could also be arrested without having probable cause to do so. Warrant can also be applied for in case of the failure of a person to appear in court or when someone is suspected of deliberately misleading a government agency.

Warrant records are considered to be public information and can be obtained from the county office. There are strict regulations as to how often one can request for such records. First, a person needs to be a resident of Indiana or a person who is a qualified candidate for naturalization. If a person has not attained 21 years of age, he or she cannot legally obtain the information.

Aside from being able to search for such records in a criminal court, a person can also use this service to find out about criminal activity that is taking place in one’s community. It is not only about criminal activity but civil matters as well such as traffic offenses or sexual offenses. These data can be used by schools, police authorities, security agencies, and other agencies to serve their particular purpose. For example, it would be useful for schools to verify the details of expelled students especially those who have already been suspended or expelled.

The use of criminal background search is useful not just for the aforementioned purposes but to prevent any threat to the person’s life, safety, property, and rights. This is particularly true with regards to employment since most employers nowadays conduct background checks on potential employees before offering them a job. Aside from civil matters such as traffic offenses, criminal activity can also be used to prevent the violation of other people’s rights such as those of sexual offenders, parole violators, and sex offenders.

Warrant records are also helpful in the event of a divorce wherein one seeks to take custody or visitation of a child with the help of an unlicensed personnel. A person with a criminal record may refuse to grant any child access to his or her home if the person is involved in criminal activities. In this situation, a warrant may be required to give the person access to children. Warrant records may also be used in protecting a business from any possible threat, theft, or burglary and to protect the identity of a person with a criminal past.
