Finding out if you or someone that you know has an active arrest warrant can be an easy and straightforward process if you have the information that well provide below, but first we should take a moment and explain a little bit about the arrest warrant creation and execution process.
In order for an arrest warrant to be created, law enforcement officials must first visit the scene of a crime, collect evidence, and attempt to identify a suspect. After this, the police must then appear before a judge or magistrate in Liberty County, FL, and while under oath, provide the evidence that they have gathered. If the judge finds the evidence adequate, he will issue an arrest warrant for the suspect. Please be aware that an arrest warrant is not an indication of guilt, as only a trial can establish guilt. Once issued, police forces must apprehend the suspect within 48 hours.
We should also take a moment to explain that although arrest warrants are always issued by specific counties, they are valid statewide, meaning that you cannot flee from an active Liberty County warrant by moving to another county.
There are multiple ways to find out if you have an active arrest warrant. The first is to simply contact the Liberty County Sheriffs Office, either at PO Box 67, in Bristol FL 32321, or by phone at 850.643.2235. Another option is to utilize the database of Wanted Persons located at http://pas.fdle.state.fl.us/pas/person/displayWantedPersonsSearch.a and provided by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Or you can use the above search form to instantly search through an online criminal records database.
