Palm Beach County Arrest Records and Warrant Search

Before initiating a Palm Beach warrant search, it is advisable to understand the legal mechanism that lies behind the process of arrest. A glimpse at Florida rules of criminal procedure will help you shed light on this issue.

In short, the police can arrest a suspect if he/she is caught red handed while committing a crime. Otherwise, they will have no choice but to persuade a judge to sign an arrest warrant. A judge will agree to do it provided that there is a probable cause that justifies incarcerating a suspect.

The moment a warrant is signed by a judge, it becomes active and it allows the police to apprehend the suspect anywhere and anytime. If the suspect is not taken into custody, the warrant remains legally valid as an outstanding warrant.

To conduct a full criminal background check, you will, first of all, need to garner information on Palm Beach County arrests. This can be done by resorting to local and statewide databases that will be mentioned in the course of the article.

Finally, Palm Beach county court records can broaden your perspective. This is because they contain data on a person's history of prosecutions and convictions.  In other words, you will be able to know if the one you are searching has been formerly accused of a crime, has been found guilty in court and has been sent to jail or prison.
