The first thing that you need to know about arrest warrants in Bradford County FL is that they function in the exact same way as arrest warrants in every other county in Florida. As outlined by the Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure (which can be found and read at floridabar.org), all Bradford County arrest warrants must include a number of different things, and be created in the same way.
First, officers of the peace must present evidence of probable cause to a judge in a Bradford County FL court house. If the judge accepts that enough evidence is provided for probable cause, they will authorize and ultimately sign an arrest warrant. Bradford County FL arrest warrants authorize the police forces of Bradford County FL to seek out and arrest the individual named by the warrant. In order for the warrant to be considered valid, it must include the name of the suspect, the crimes that they committed, and bear the signature of the authorizing judge or magistrate.
