Searching For Warrant Records

Warrant Records are files that contain a person’s name and any other pieces of information that pertain to their case. These records are public and can be obtained by anyone who needs it for various reasons. The first reason that warrants are public is so that law enforcement officials have a heads up on any crimes that may occur within their jurisdictions. By making these documents public, officials can better track and catch any offenders.

Warrant records also help law enforcement officials when they are conducting a search for someone. A search like this would be for an individual wanted on a felony case. If the person’s name was recorded in a system, they can be located through that method as well. This is helpful in many ways. It helps law officials locate the person easily, avoid making a mistake, and avoid spending money on a fruitless search. In most cases, the person will already have a record on their database.

There are two different types of warrant records, federal and state. Federal warrants are granted by the federal government. State warrants are issued by state authorities. By using a person’s name or information, a state officer can locate a person. Most states require the person’s name to be registered first before they can obtain the warrant.

There is no limit as to how many warrants can exist. If there is a concern that a person may not be following the law, they can be put in jail either legally or physically. When a warrant is issued, it remains active until it is cancelled or dismissed. Once cancelled, the warrant is added to the person’s file. Therefore, someone can have multiple warrants depending on the situation.

Warrant records can be used in many ways in a legal investigation. A warrant can give law enforcement officials insight into a possible illegal activity. By searching the database, they will be able to determine if a person has broken the law. For example, if a person drives around with lots of drugs, but they do not have a warrant for their arrest, they could still be arrested because they are driving around with drugs paraphernalia.

People that want to conduct a warrant search must fill out an application with the court. This application will let them know how the person wants the warrant issued. After the person completes the application, they will be notified if the warrant is being issued. If the person finds out that the warrant is already in place, they should drop the search as doing so would be considered an illegal act in the eyes of the law.
