Nassau County arrest warrants are essentially an extension of the authority of the state of Florida to enforce its own laws, and to punish those individuals whom break them. For an arrest warrant to be created, a suspect in a crime must first be identified. Once this is done, law enforcement can appear before a Nassau County FL judge in a court, and demonstrate their evidence. The judge can then authorize and sign an arrest warrant, granting law enforcement personnel 48 hours to apprehend and arrest the suspect.
However, just because an arrest warrant has been issued, does not mean that the suspect is guilty.
Because arrest warrants are issued through the authority of the state of Florida, Nassau County arrest warrants are valid everywhere within the state. This means that simply moving into another county cannot prevent an arrest from being made.
There are a few different methods by which individuals can attempt to learn whether or not they, or someone they know, has an active arrest warrant in Nassau County Florida. The first is to visit or otherwise contact the Nassau County Sheriffs Office. The physical location of their office is 76001 Bobby Moore Circle, in Yulee FL, and their telephone number is 904-225-0331.
