Wayne County, Kentucky arrest warrants are released by local criminal courts at any level of the judicial hierarchy; however, these orders are only issued when the sheriff's office or another law enforcement agency files a request for it. In order to petition the court for an active warrant, the police have to submit a writ which has information on the evidence available in the case.

This written account of all the proof held by the cops should be enough to convince the judge of the culpability of the accused. If the information is not adequate for the establishment of probable cause, the judge may very well deny the request. However, before this is done, it is normal to call in the witnesses to depose under oath.

If what they have to say is enough to show the involvement of the accused in the incident, the judge will promptly sign the active warrant and hand it to the officers who are investigating the case. When an arrest order of this nature is issued, information pertaining to it is kept by the issuing judicial entity, the office of the county clerk as well as the department of the sheriff.

For a few days after release, information on these judicial directives is just held by the agencies listed above. However, once it is deemed as an outstanding warrant from Wayne County, details pertaining to it are also sent to the FBI from where it is relayed to other law enforcement offices from the central crime database maintained by the federal agency.
