A warrant is an order of a court authorizing a law enforcement officer to arrest and bring a person before a judge.The Significance of Outstanding Warrants
When law enforcement is unable to locate the subject of a warrant, the warrant becomes an outstanding warrant and the information contained on the warrant and identifying information pertaining to the person is entered into local, state and/or national record management systems or computerized wanted person files.
Intrastate notification to law enforcement that a person is wanted on an outstanding warrant is generally the result of an inquiry of local and state justice information systems. National notification to law enforcement that a person is wanted on an outstanding warrant is the result of an inquiry of the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), Wanted Person File.
Sharing this critical information among jurisdictions is essential to protecting public safety.Warrant Business Process Flow Diagram
