Search for Morgan County Warrants, Alabama (AL)


Your search remains confidential. The search subject will not be notified.

Morgan County, AL active warrants are court issued orders that ask the police to bring a person accused of a criminal offense before the bench. However, the local tribunal does not go about issuing these directives of its own volition. How can it? After all, there is no way for the judiciary to know about the occurrence of a criminal act unless the police or the victim file a complaint with the magistrate.

If the offense is brought to light by a civilian and it does not involve a police officer, a criminal summons will be issued against the alleged perpetrator. This should not be taken lightly as it is often the first step towards the issue of an active warrant. If a summons is disobeyed, the magistrate will not think twice about commanding the arrest of the accused.

In contrast, when the complaint is taken to court by an agent of a law enforcement department, the court will consider the matter in light of the probable cause requirement. If this is met, an Morgan County active warrant is granted right off the bat. Upon issue, it is expected that the police will pull all stops to make arrests under the provisions of these directives.

Generally, officers will quickly make their way to the home or the office of the accused after they are given an outstanding warrant from Morgan County. However, sometimes, little is known about the whereabouts of the suspect or the offender is found to have fled the county. In these situations, information on the outstanding warrant against this person is sent to a nationwide crime database kept by the FBI.
