About Warrant Search

What is a Warrant Search?

A Warrant Search provides detailed information on whether an individual has any outstanding warrants for his or her arrest. These warrants may be issued by local or county law enforcement authorities, and they are signed by a judge. A Warrant Search checks public records to determine whether any warrants have been issued for a particular person.

A warrant contains important information, including the wanted individual's name, the name of the judge who signed the warrant, the date the warrant was issued, and the jurisdiction that issued the warrant. It may include the individual's age, date of birth, a physical description, and any known aliases. A Warrant Search will also include the charges for which an individual has not yet been arrested.

There are multiple different types of warrants that may be issued for an individual. An arrest warrant is issued if the police have a reasonable suspicion that an individual has committed a crime. Bench warrants are issued by courts when a subject avoids a court appearance or does not comply with a court order. A search warrant authorizes law enforcement to search an individual's residence, property, or person for evidence of a crime.

There are a number of reasons to perform a Warrant Search. Screening for active warrants can be an important part of a background check. Employers, law enforcement agencies, and individuals may perform a Warrant Search to learn if a potential employee, suspect, or neighbor is wanted for a particular crime. This information can be useful to assess a wanted individual's threat to public safety.

Warrant searches also provide contact information for the authority that issued the warrant. If you identify the subject of an outstanding warrant, you should immediately contact the law enforcement office that issued the warrant. A failure to do so may be considered obstruction of justice.
