Hendricks County, Indiana, has among the lowest crime rate of all counties in the state, yet this does not mean that you should forego the formality of conducting a warrant search when taking on a new employee. It would also be best to go through arrest records and a background check to be on the safer side, even for newly made friends.
Because an arrest warrant is only issued after scrutiny of case related facts, it would be safe to suggest that while an order for arrest is not a conviction, if the criminal court has issued a warrant, there exist ample evidence in the matter to hold the person in question responsible for the crime.
Once an active arrest warrant is procured from the court, the police department will try to make an arrest based on it almost immediately. However, if it is put on the back burner as an outstanding warrant for some reason, it in no way loses its efficacy. So, a person who has an outstanding warrant in his/her name will also be arrested if confronted by a law representative.
It does not take a lot to do a warrant search on an individual; walk into the Sheriff’s Office located at 925 E Main St, Danville, Indiana 46122. You can also use the form given above to get your hands on an internet-based database of arrest records.
