The constant mention of warrants is bound to raise some questions about arrest orders and their functions. If you are keen on a warrant search or simply want to know more about the judicial stand on arrest orders. Here is some vital information about these documents.

What is an arrest warrant?

In Adams County, like the rest of the country, an active arrest warrant is essentially a judicial order that instructs and allows the police to apprehend an individual who is suspected of a crime and present him/her before the court of law to stand trial for his/her misdemeanors.

Arrest warrants are not time sensitive and stay in effect from the day they are issued till such time as the document is executed to make an arrest. However, timing is often crucial when making in arrest in a particularly serious matter as there is always the risk of the individual in question taking to his heels and leaving the county or state. So, arrest warrants are issued at any time of the day or night.

How are arrest warrants issued?

To get a warrant, the police department has to approach the criminal court in Adams County, NY with a sworn affidavit that states the crime, details about the person against whom the order is being sought and of course the evidence collected in the case.

If the information provided at this point is sufficient for the DA's department to eventually file a case against the person in question, the judge signs the arrest order which is legally termed to be an active warrant.

Active warrants that are not used to make an arrest are kept back in the system as outstanding warrants and information about these orders can be accessed by police officers from all over the country.
