What is an Active Arrest Warrant?

An Active Warrant or Arrest Warrant, is an order issued by law enforcement to locate and arrest a subject that may be accused of any number of criminal offences. When the subject is found, he or she is normally arrested and jailed, pending a visit to the judge. Minor crimes can be issued a court date and released or released on a personal recognizance.

How do I find out if I have a warrant?

(1) Always start with our Free Active Warrant Search.
(2) Next try searching locally, most major cities have online searches available. Many smaller counties and towns don't yet have online access to arrest warrants but most do at least provide a phone number you can call to inquire.
