Before requesting information on arrest warrants in Monroe County, NY, it is imperative to understand how warrants work, how they are procured and the authority they confer on the law enforcement officials. A Monroe County arrest warrant can exclusively be issued by the criminal court in the county.

In order to procure an active arrest warrant, the police have to make a formal request to the sitting judge for the issuance of the warrant. At this time, the judge considers the information furnished in the sworn statement to ensure that there is enough evidence to support the eventual filing of a case against the person in question.

In case of insufficient information, the judge has the authority to deny the request of the Sherriff’s and District Attorney’s Departments. However, if the information is appropriate and sufficient, the judge signs the warrant which then becomes an active warrant.

When acting warrants are not served they become outstanding warrants; however, they still give law enforcement officers the authority to arrest the people against whom these warrants were sought.

To find out about Monroe County active warrants, you will need to contact the local Sherriff’s office located at 130 Plymouth Avenue, Rochester, NY 14614. Alternatively you could also speak to them over the phone by dialing 585-753-4522.
