Just like other Ohio counties, Franklin County has a pre-established arrest-warrants-issuing procedure that needs to be strictly respected by the law agencies that are responsible for maintaining order in the streets. Namely, for arrest warrants to become active warrants here, they first need to be issued by either one of these agencies: the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department, the town police, the city police, or the Ohio State Highway Patrol police unit. Once a criminal act has been discovered and a suspect has been named, sufficient evidence needs to be gathered and brought to a court of law. There, a magistrate or a sitting judge will become responsible for the issuing of active warrants of arrest on the suspect’s name. Upon signing these papers, they gain legal force and they entitle law enforcement officers to start the search and complete the arrest of the alleged criminals.

At times, outstanding warrants will also be added to the criminal or arrest records of a suspect, due to the police’s inability to find or capture the respective felon.
