Regardless of where you are in Florida, the same arrest warrant laws apply. This is because Florida itself mandates the way that all arrest warrants are created and executed. One of the implications of this statewide policy is that once issued, the target of an arrest warrant can be arrested in any county in Florida and can even be pursued over county lines.
For a Manatee County FL arrest warrant to be created, law enforcement officials must appear in a court or before a judge in Manatee County and present their evidence, while sworn in, to the judge. Assuming that the judge believes there is enough evidence to justify an arrest warrant, they will sign it, which gives the police 48 hours to find and arrest the suspect. All arrest warrants must include the suspect’s name, explain his alleged crimes, and bear the judge’s signature.
