An arrest warrant is an official, state-backed notice that grants the authority to the police of Taylor County FL to arrest an individual. Arrest warrants are created and issued when the police have collected enough evidence to strongly indicate that a suspect was involved in a crime, and once they are authorized by a judge of Taylor County. Despite being issued by Taylor County, these warrants are valid throughout the entire state, and wanted suspects can be arrested by the police of any other county in Florida.
It is often possible for suspects that have been made the target of an arrest warrant to not even be aware that they are suspects in a crime. Thankfully, it is possible for the citizens of Florida to actually look up current arrest warrants, both for their own benefit and so that they can aid Florida law enforcement in capturing suspects. To start a Taylor County arrest warrants search, you will want to visit the Investigations section of the Taylor County Sheriffs Office at http://taylorcountysherifffl.org/LawEnforcementCriminalInv.aspx.
