For an arrest that is not made while the crime is being committed to be deemed legal, it has to take place under the authority of a warrant. However, the court does not issue arrest orders in criminal complaints on its own. The Sherriff's Department has to initiate the procedure of procuring the arrest order.

To begin with, the law enforcement unit approaches the criminal court in Johnson County IN, explaining the reasons for requesting a warrant to the judge by presenting a sworn affidavit. If found to be relevant, the request is granted and the sitting magistrate signs the arrest order which is then called an active arrest warrant.

Given the fact that time is a crucial element in making arrests in serious felonies, a warrant can be issued at any time and it can also be executed without any time or place barriers. However, if for some unforeseen reason an arrest is not made, the order does not go out of effect. Instead, it is simply stored in the crime system as an outstanding arrest warrant.

If you are interested in a warrant search, contact the Sherriff Office of Johnson County located on 1091 Hospital Road, Franklin, Indiana 46131. Information is not offered over the phone but you can enquire about the warrant search procedure by dialing 317-736-9155.
