In Randolph County, IN when an active warrant is requested, witnesses are frequently called in during the hearing. At this stage, their testimony is merely required to ensure that the police have enough proof against the person in question to file charges against him and request a judicial order for his detention.

Arrest warrants from Randolph are issued after much deliberation on the part of the judiciary. The law of the land dictates that such a detention order cannot be issued unless there is clear probable cause to hold the accused guilty of the crime. However, once an active warrant is put into effect, it is almost never recalled back.

As a matter of fact, such orders are often kept in the system for 100 years or more in the form of outstanding warrants. When a person is arrested through the use of such a detention decree or even without a judicial order, his name is included in the arrest records of Randolph County.

Because the police do not have the authority to indiscriminately arrest just about anybody or detain them indefinitely, these arrest records quickly become a part of the judicial database as well, when the case goes to trial. From here, this information can be accessed by just about anybody under the Freedom of Information Act of the State.

So, you have the statutory right to conduct a warrant search in Randolph County and this can be done through the office of the sheriff, magistrate as well as the clerk of court. To connect with these agencies, you can head to:

  • Sitting Magistrate: 100 S Main St, Winchester, IN 47394
  • Police: 155 E South Street, Winchester, Indiana 47394

Nearly 350 criminal complaints are filed in Randolph County, IN annually. Fortunately, only about 5% of these are violent in nature.
