Warrant Division


Warrant Division

The Sheriff's Office processes and maintains current warrant data, as required by state statute. Deputies assigned to this division are responsible for carrying out the Sheriff's responsibility for executing all arrest orders issued by lawful authority.

A warrant is a court order to apprehend an individual. The Sheriff's Office does not issue warrants; arrest warrants are issued by the Courts, signed by Judges and then entered into the statewide and national databases.

Active Warrant Lists:

The information on warrants comes directly from the Sixth Judicial District Court. The Sheriff's Office offers the online list as a public service for informational and public safety purposes. A name on the list does not indicate that the person is guilty of a crime; only that a warrant was on file for their arrest on the date and time the list was published.



The active warrant list is updated at 9:00 PM, seven days a week. However, there are often delays between a court action on a warrant and updates to the warrant database. The list attempts, but does not guarantee, accuracy. All active warrants must be confirmed prior to enforcement.

If you determine that a name is listed in error, please contact the appropriate Court's clerk to resolve the issue.

Do not attempt apprehension of any party listed as having an active warrant. Arrests should be handled by law enforcement only.
