How Does a Florida Warrant Search Proceed?
In Florida, judges issue arrest warrants for a variety of reasons, including criminal charges, probation violation, and absence from court. Florida law enforcement must first appear in court and testify before a judge that, to the best of their knowledge, the individual is responsible for the crime. As soon as the judge or magistrate signs off on the warrant, the police can arrest and detain the offender at any time and place. The warrant remains active until the offender has been arrested. Find out how to perform a Florida warrant search in the following sections.
What Does a Bench Warrant Mean in Florida?
A bench warrant is a form of arrest warrant issued by a Florida judge for violation of court order (also known as “contempt of court”). One can incur a bench warrant by violating probation or failing to appear in court for a court hearing or trial. If the defendant is out of Florida, local police can arrest him/her at their current location and detain them in a local jail before transferring them back to Florida. A Florida warrant search will reveal much of this information and more.

One can search for active Florida arrest warrants online in the Florida Crime Information Center’spublic database. All information in this database was submitted to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement by law enforcement agencies throughout the state. The FDLE warns that the information cannot be used as probable cause for arrest or for confirmation that a certain warrant is active. The site advises against taking individual action based on reports found in the database. Users can search the FDLE records by entering the wanted person’s full name, sex, race, and age or date of birth.
