An arrest warrant, also known as an active warrant, is the vehicle by which a law enforcement officer takes a suspect into custody until he can be brought before a judge for a hearing. If you believe that you or someone you know may have an outstanding warrant, you may want to search court records and contact the police department so that you can try to take care of the matter before you are apprehended. If you do have an outstanding warrant, you should contact an attorney to help you navigate the criminal justice system in Grady County.
