Looking for Vigo County IN, arrest records? Interested in a warrant search? If you answered those questions with a "yes", it is time to educate yourself on arrest records and their powers. A document that authorizes the police to legally detain a person even after the investigative process has been completed is called an arrest warrant.

The order is judicial in nature and only a federal or state level criminal court can issue it. The warrant is only issued when the police make a formal request to the magistrate with a sworn statement that outlines case related information.

This is carefully studied before the judge signs the arrest order. However, once an active arrest warrant comes into existence, the person in question cannot escape an arrest. While sometimes the order is not executed immediately, it never loses its powers.

This means that an arrest order stored in the police database as an outstanding warrant also authorizes law enforcement official to take the person, against whom it has been issued, into custody.
