An arrest warrant search from Hart County, KY will get you details on detentions that occurred with and without judicial orders. However, to better understand the results of your inquiry and to use the response appropriately, you will need to know a little about how arrests occur and the role of warrants in the process.

Arrests: This term refers to the physical detention of a person who is suspected of having commissioned a criminal act. There are two ways in which arrests occur; the suspect can either walk into a police station and hand himself over or the police can bring him in by force. In either case, a note will be made of the detention and details pertaining to it will be included in the arrest records in the name of the accused.

Custodial detentions don’t only occur when the police have an active warrant in Hart County to base these on; arrests can also be made if suspicious items are found on the person during a routine “stop and frisk” or if this individual is arrested while driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or when the police have reliable information which is enough to show reasonable cause against the suspect.

Arrest warrants: These are released by the local courts but only after applications for them are received by the bench, from the office of the sheriff. Orders of this nature have perpetual validity and often get stored in the police database when they cannot be served promptly. Such outstanding warrants from Hart County are no less potent than freshly issued directives.
