In South Carolina, officers may arrest individuals without a warrant; however, the preferred procedure is for the officer to obtain an active warrant prior to arrest. Exceptions include when an officer witnesses a crime or when obtaining a warrant may result in the escape of the suspect. To obtain an arrest warrant, the officer must "swear out a warrant" before a Magistrate Court judge by filing a sworn affidavit and complaint setting forth the facts to demonstrate that the alleged suspect committed the crime. Once the judge signs the warrant, it is directed to all law enforcement officers to apprehend and detain the suspect until he appears before a judge for a hearing. To perform a warrant search in Greenwood County, you may begin by checking the online court case system.
