If you plan to make a Butler County, Ohio arrest warrants search, you might need to clarify a few things before getting started. First, the arrest warrants are issued by certain agencies such as the state police, highway patrol, town or city police, and the county sheriff’s department. Therefore, each of these agencies can issue arrest warrants against a suspect soon after an officer of the law or another crime investigator has managed to gather sufficient evidence according to which a crime has been committed.

These legal papers only gain their active status and turn into active warrants when a sitting judge or a magistrate decides that enough evidence and information has been brought to their knowledge in the court of law. Soon after the identification of a probable cause is discovered, the warrants will be officially signed and activated by the same judge. Therefore, they will become part of the county’s arrest records database and then turn into public records. The names, age, and last known addresses of the people who have been charged or who have escaped the police will be made public.

The previously mentioned agencies are also aware of the outstanding warrants that exist in this county in Ohio.
