Getting an arrest warrant search in Spencer County, KY is not an exceptionally tedious task; however, for the police procuring an order for detention is certainly not simple. If you are wondering why is it that cops go through the bother of trying to get one, the answer to this lies in the power that an active warrant offers to the arresting officers.

To begin with, it is imperative to understand that constitutional clauses are in place to safeguard citizens against unlawful arrests. In keeping with these laws, any form of detention infringes upon the right of freedom of an individual. Hence it was essential to circumvent these rules to provide for arrests in criminal matters.

This gave rise to the provision of arrest warrants. However, the police can only file a request for warrants if they have enough proof to convince any person of reasonable mind of the culpability of a suspect. This is what the judge looks for before he signs the order putting it into effect.

Once a Spencer County active warrant is handed over to the cops, they can take it to any place and at any time to effect the detention of the accused.
