One of the advantages of having arrest warrants established through the statewide criminal procedure is that arrest warrants function exactly in every county. This has several interesting implications that we will go over. But first, what is an arrest warrant?
A Volusia County arrest warrant, or an arrest warrant for any Florida county, is essentially the state’s authorization. Of Volusia County, it enforces the laws that it has set forth. To this end, police forces can place under custody individuals that have been implicated in a crime so that they may be brought to trial.
For an arrest warrant to be created, the police have to give evidence against the individual to a judge in a court. Assuming that the judge finds the evidence compelling, he can authorize an arrest warrant to be issued.
