An active arrest warrant from Elbert County, GA is a judicial detention order issued against a person who is accused of committing a felony or a serious misdemeanor. While arrest warrants are issued by the sitting magistrate of a local criminal court, upon release, they are handed over to the police for execution.
The law enforcement agency also plays a role in the issue of these detention orders. The process starts with the submission of an affidavit in court which offers the judge an explanation on why a person is being held responsible for a crime and the cause that has led the police to believe that the occurrence in question was a crime to begin with.
Once the sitting judge is convinced of this, a warrant is issued which has the name of the accused on it along with the crime that he/she is being suspected of committing and the signature of the magistrate. The original petition for the warrant presented by the police is also attached with the arrest order. Both the police and the magistrate's court save up all information pertaining to such detention decrees.
