One of the advantages of Florida arrest warrants is that they are dictated at the same level. This means that no matter what county you’re in, the warrant laws are the same. One of the implications of this is that while arrest warrants must originate from a particular county, they are executable over state lines. This means that an individual cannot hope to avoid an arrest warrant by merely fleeing over county lines.

After an arrest warrant is issued, police must arrest within 48 hours.
