Before undertaking any arrest warrant search for Miami-Dade County, FL, there are a few things that you should first understand. The first is that having an arrest warrant issued out in your name does not mean that you are guilty of a crime. Rather, it means that the state wishes to bring you into custody, and this may be as a result of a crime. The only way that guilt or involvement in a crime can be proven is in a court of law.
The second important detail is that arrest warrants are valid throughout the entire state. What this means is that even if you flee across the state, if you have a Miami-Dade County arrest warrant out for you, you can still be pursued and arrested.
There are several different ways that concerned citizens can find out if they have an active Miami-Dade County warrant. The first is by contacting the Miami-Dade County Sheriffs Offices Warrants Section. You can find their official web page at http://www.miamidade.gov/mdpd/BureausDivisions/bureau_Warrants.asp.
