Clayton County has the fourth busiest Magistrate Court in the state of Georgia. That is the court that issues arrest warrants on criminal and civil charges, as well as search warrants for law enforcement officers. When an active warrant has been issued, it goes to the Sheriff’s Office, where officers of the Tactical Warrant Services Staff execute it and arrest the suspect. Because of Clayton County’s size, the sheriff’s department has divided the area into eight zones and assigned deputies from Tactical Warrant Services and the Special Victims Unit and Community Relations. These officers all work together to handle the crimes committed in their zone.

The Sheriff’s Department worked with the Clayton County Department of Information Technology to create an interactive map showing the location of active and outstanding arrest warrants, both for felonies and misdemeanors, as well as registered sex offenders in each zone of the county. It is searchable by either the street name, the offender’s last name or the offense type. It also includes contact information for the deputies in charge of the zone.
