In Brantley County, Georgia, only a tribunal with criminal jurisdiction can be approached for the release of arrest warrants.While civil and family courts can also issue orders for detention, these differ significantly from arrest decrees issued in felony cases. For one, unlike a bench warrant which is released by non criminal tribunals, an active warrant for arrest stays valid perpetually.

If an arrest is not made within a stipulated period after the release of such orders, they merely get stored in the police database as outstanding warrants, without any real change to the authority they grant to peace officers. In contrast, a bench warrant becomes invalid after a period of 90 days.

Also, bench warrants like other judicial instruments such as summons and subpoenas can be issued by the judge at his discretion. However, in case of a Brantley County, GA active warrant released in a criminal matter, the police have to get the process started by submitting an affidavit that informs the court of the crime and the involvement of the alleged offender in it.

Once the matter is taken to court for a warrant hearing, all information pertaining to it, including the original petition is stored with the office of the magistrate as well as the county clerk's department. The latter is responsible for maintaining the database of court dockets. So, to find information on Brantley County, Georgia arrest records and active warrants, you can get in touch with these agencies at:

  • The office of the clerk of court: PO Box 1067, Nahunta, Georgia 31553
  • The office of the magistrate: 117 Brantley St, Nahunta, GA 31553
  • The sheriff's department: Hwy 82, Nahunta, Georgia 31553
