Because an arrest warrant is issued through the courts but is directed toward law enforcement officers for service, it is important to check courts and law enforcement agencies when performing a warrant search. Courts maintain records of warrants issued and cases tried on those warrants. Law enforcement agencies maintain criminal records and lists of outstanding warrants that have yet to be executed. Both are excellent sources for searching arrest records in Washington County.
