Outstanding warrants and criminal background reports

In order to determine if there is an outstanding warrant pending, the best resource is the Sheriff's Office. Because the Sheriff's Office is charged with executing warrants issued within the county, it is the best place to search for outstanding warrants. Furthermore, the Sheriff's Office maintains detailed arrest records and can assist you with criminal background checks.
Law enforcement officers can arrest someone without a warrant provided that the officer witnesses the crime being committed. The exception to this rule is that if an officer has probable cause (a reasonable belief) that a felony has been committed and he may lose the suspect if he takes time to swear out a warrant, he may arrest the suspect without an active warrant.
