If youre trying to perform a Putnam County warrants search, then there are a few things that you should be aware of. These include both how to find arrest warrants throughout the state of Florida, but also exactly what an arrest warrant can mean for you and your family. To begin, lets look at the places where you can find arrest warrant information.
The first option for looking up Putnam County arrest warrants is through the sheriffs office of that county. You can locate their headquarters are 130 Orie Griffin Blvd, Palatka, FL 32177, or contact them by phone at 386-329-0800. However, this office has a page that is dedicated to performing active arrest warrant searches, and provides further information to that extent. You can find this page at http://www.pcso.us/warrants.
A pair of other options exist too, such as a statewide wanted persons database, located at http://pas.fdle.state.fl.us/pas/person/displayWantedPersonsSearch.a, or you can use the above search form to instantly search through an online criminal records database.
The process by which an arrest warrant can be issued in Putnam County is the same as it is for every other county, and is regulated by the Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure (see: http://www.floridabar.org/TFB/TFBResources.nsf/0/BDFE1551AD291A3F85256B2...$FILE/Criminal.pdf?OpenElement). The process basically involves police presenting evidence against an individual in a court in front of a judge, and the judge then determining whether there is sufficient reason to believe that the individual was involved in the crime. Once this is done, an arrest warrant is signed, giving police 48 hours to make an arrest.
To make an inquiry as to the criminal backgrounds of current prisoners in Florida, or even to see who is currently in prison in Putnam County, you will want to use the FDoCs information search tool at http://www.dc.state.fl.us/AppCommon/.
