An active arrest warrant issued in Franklin County, Georgia is a legal directive from a local tribunal that authorizes the police to arrest the individual in whose name the order has been issued. Despite this simple definition of arrest warrants, there seems to be a lot of ambiguity about the rights that such a decree confers upon peace officers.

To begin with, it is imperative to understand that the police only play the role of the applicant in the issue of arrest warrants. Law enforcement has no say in the actual release of such an order. It is the judiciary that maintains the authority to actually sign the detention decree.

In keeping with this, the sheriff's office merely furnishes the information that the court needs to come to a decision about the culpability of the suspect. The magistrate who hears the pre-warrant case is legally bound to ascertain that there is probable cause to hold the person in question responsible for the crime before a warrant is issued.

Once this perquisite is met and the judge finds that there indeed is enough reason to detain the accused, an arrest order is handed over to the police. Through the use of this decree, a peace officer can take a person into custody from anywhere and at any time. If you are interested in a warrant search or would like information on outstanding warrants, you can find these details with the judiciary as well as the local sheriff's office. They can be contacted at:
