How to Check If You Have An Active Arrest Warrant

Arresting people is what police officers are there for

It may not be politically correct for any police force to say that their prime objective is to make as many arrests as possible but what do you think motivates the cops on the street? I’m sure that they get good reports for making arrests and they know how to check if you have an active arrest warrant. Think about that for a moment and you will see that asking a police officer to do a check for you is not a good idea. There is a much better way to check for your warrants.

Knowing how your police department works is very important. It exists to investigate and detect crime and then to arrest the perpetrators of those crimes. It makes sense to measure their performance to make sure that they are doing the best job for you and reward them appropriately for doing it. The problem with this is that it creates an eagerness to arrest people that fosters a competitive attitude towards arrests. Police officers could become more interested in maximizing arrests than detecting and preventing real crime.

How do you measure the performance of a police officer?

I’m guessing that there are many things that police forces use to asses the performance of their officers. This could include recording the accuracy and speed of their paperwork, their proficiency with weapons and a host of other things. It would be very naive to imagine that the number of arrests made by by an officer is not included in the assessment.

Measuring arrest numbers is easy

It’s almost too easy to to count the number of arrests made and I’m sure that they make it more interesting by awarding more or less weight depending on the severity of the crime. Was it a misdemeanor or a felony? Busting someone for a felony is sure to prompt a celebration don’t you think? It must be worth many points on the arrest tally sheet.

Police officers can check if you have an arrest warrant

So cops are measured by how many arrest that they make. They can also check to see if you have a warrant so what do you think is the first thing they do when they stop you for any reason? They will check to see if you are wanted of course.

Problem solved you might think. All you have to do to check for arrest warrants is ask a police officer. But there is a catch. A police officer will be only too pleased to do an arrest warrant check on you and they will do it for free too. The problem is that they will arrest you on the spot if they fid that you have a warrant.

Remember the game that the cops play involves arresting as many people as possible in as short a time as possible. Finding out that you are wanted represents an easy score for them.

You do not want to get arrested

Believe me when I tell you that the last thing you want to happen is to get yourself arrested. This aplies whether you have committed an offence or not. Getting arrested means spending some time in jail and the possible expense of bail. It also means that you will have an arrest record that will never go away. For many employers, having been arrested is reason enough not to give you a job. It won’t count for much that you were never convicted or even if you were never charged with anything. The fact that you show up on police records is enough to condemn you to a life of low paid work.

So if you have offended and you want to put things right, check public records first to see if you have a warrant and get it sorted before the police have a chance to arrest you. Get yourself a lawyer to guide you safely through the process.

If you have not committed any offence, or you don’t think that you have, then it’s still a good idea to check yourself out regularly just in case you have collected a warrant for something that you know nothing about. Victims of identity theft have this problem all the time. Check to see if you have an active arrest warrant using public records right now. You might regret it if you don’t.
