Inquiries of this nature are handled by the records or the public service division of the agency. On the other hand, the petition for the release of an active warrant is filed by the court services wing of the department.

When a crime is committed, the police have to take a call on making arrests immediately or filing for the issue of an active warrant. Although the former approach can be chosen for felonies, the detention has to occur within a few days of the occurrence of the criminal transgression. Also, cops need to have information that shows clear probable cause against the accused.

Warrantless arrests can only be made in such cases. If the matter in question is a misdemeanor, the only time that the police can nab the accused without an arrest warrant is if the crime has taken place in front of an officer of the law.
