An arrest can only be made in Kings County, NY, after the alleged offender has been served with an arrest warrant. To procure an arrest warrant, the sitting judge must be presented with an affidavit stating the person’s misdemeanors against whom the warrant is being sought. Once the judge signs the warrant, it gives police officers the authority to take the person in custody.

An active arrest warrant becomes an outstanding arrest warrant if it is not served. There can be several reasons for this; the person in whose name the Kings County active arrest warrant has been issued may be unaware of it, or he/she may be resisting arrest. A police officer has the authority to arrest a person based on an outstanding arrest warrant.

An arrest warrant is issued for crimes not committed in front of a law enforcement official and against people who fail to appear at bail hearings. To find out if there is an active arrest warrant in Kings County, NY against a person, the Sheriff’s Departments of Kings County, New York can be contacted in person for information on active and outstanding arrest warrants.

The individual seeking information on arrest records should carry his/her Id along when visiting the Kings County Sheriff’s Department’s office at 208 Joralemon Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201.

The Sheriff’s Department can also be contacted through fax at 718-802-3715. Alternatively, you could fill the form given above to search through an online criminal records database for an arrest warrant search.
