All Wayne County OH arrests need to be preceded by the local court of law issuing arrest warrants. The same state regulations apply here also; in other words, first, a warrant needs to be issued by one of the following authorities: the town or city police department, the sheriff’s office, or the state highway patrol. Sufficient evidence needs to be gathered by any of these institutions and their legal representatives. The same evidence needs to be brought to the court, in front of a judge, and carefully analyzed. Unless a probable cause is clearly identified, active warrants of arrest will not be signed by the judge. Alternatively, if sufficient evidence is displayed, these papers will enable the county’s local law enforcement officers to exert the law, capture and incarcerate the suspects of a criminal act.
Outstanding warrants also need to follow the same regulations for the state of Ohio.
