While not complex the law pertaining to the issue of arrest warrants in Henry County, Virginia is very clear and binding on all justice agencies involved in the act of arresting the offender and trying the accused.The police will usually place a formal request before the court for the issue of an active warrant, when an arrest cannot be made on the spot after the crime.

In fact, it is not uncommon for the sheriff's office to approach the court for such an order only in matters where the name of the suspect emerges after significant investigation.All detention decrees issued by the court are a binding on the cops; this means that they cannot decline to execute these orders including bench warrants.

However, the court does not place a time limit on the execution of such decrees. Orders that cannot be served within a certain period after issue are stored in the police database as outstanding warrants and information on these are offered to law enforcement personnel from across the country. In fact, civilians can also do a warrant search by approaching a state agency.

Depending on the reasons for wanting data pertaining to arrest records and active warrants, there are three state departments that can be approached:
