Meade County, Kentucky arrest warrants enter the justice system of the state when cops put in a formal request for these detention orders with the local judicial authority. Because an active warrant is in fact a judicial directive to peace officers for apprehending an alleged offender, the court must be included in the process of warrant issue.

The sitting magistrate is appointed as an impartial entity who has to decide whether there is enough information with the police to actually blame the individual in question for the crime that has taken place. The judge decides this on the basis of the evidence presented in the affidavit. If this is not sufficient, the judiciary retains the authority to call in the witnesses for a sworn testimony.

In either case, a Meade County active warrant will only be issued once probable cause has been ascertained. Since a proper court session is held to deliberate on the information provided in the affidavit, the department of the county clerk is also called in to attend the trial as they have to save the information presented before the bench in the court dockets.

Finally, this document is handed over to the representatives of the sheriff's office who take it to the court services division of the law enforcement agency. From here, information about it is sourced out to all the deputies till the warrant is active. Once this order becomes pending, all details pertaining to this outstanding warrant from Meade County is relayed to the FBI. From here, this data is included in the national warrants database.
