When you get an arrest warrant search done in Scott County, VA, you will undoubtedly find out about the detention directives that have been served, those that are pending and arrests that have occurred under the provisions of these orders. However, the crime history report will fail to impress upon you the sheer power that an active warrant holds.

Decrees for arrests come from courthouses, with the police merely playing the role of an applicant in their issue. Of course, this is not to say that the sheriff's office works half heartedly on solving the crime. Far from it, cops make every effort to arrest a person accused of a felony at the earliest.

Actually, even when an arrest warrant is not available, an alleged offender who is being suspected of commissioning a felonious act can be apprehended on the basis of probable cause alone. For instance, if the police stumble upon this guy as he is adding the finishing touches to his criminal misdeed, a warrant will not be needed to effect his arrest.

The same also goes for offenders who are fleeing the crime scene and those that have several witnesses who have seen them commit their transgressions. However, unless the scenario in front of the cops falls in one of these categories, an active warrant will be required. To ensure that the criminal does not get away with his infractions, outstanding warrants from Scott County are saved in the system for as long as it takes to bring the accused in. To get information on arrest records and warrants, you can go to:

  • The sheriff: 112 Water St W, Gate City, Virginia 24251
  • The magistrate: 202 W Jackson St, Gate City, VA 24251
  • The clerk of court: 104 East Jackson Street Suite 2, Gate City, Virginia 24251

The violent crime rates as well as the number of reported criminal activity have gone up in Scott County, Virginia. Both these crime categories showed an increase of over 90%. Every year, from 2001 to 2008, an estimated 2850 criminal complaints were filed with the local police and nearly 9% of these complaints were lodged in violent cases.
