Grant County, Kentucky arrest warrants are no different from detention orders issued in other parts of the state. These documents are given to the police by the local criminal court. They contain an explicit order for all law enforcement agents to apprehend the person against whom the active warrant has been issued on sight.

Detention orders and other legal provisions like bench warrants from Grant and search directives are always executed by the police. In fact, the local justice agency may even file an affidavit for such an order. A petition is a mandate for arrest warrants because these are issued based on probable cause.

Yet, it is the court that has the authority to grant such directives. Whether it is a search order or an outstanding warrant, it needs the judiciary’s seal in the form of the sitting magistrate’s signature for it to go into effect.

Hence, it is understandable why the judicial offices like the magistrate court and the county clerk’s department that houses the court dockets would keep a record of all outstanding warrant issues and arrest records from Grant County. Of course, you can also initiate a warrant search through the sheriff’s department. To find your way to the office of the agencies listed below, go to:

  • Law enforcement: 101 N Main, Williamstown, Kentucky 41097
