An arrest warrant search from Buchanan County, VA, will tell you about when and why active detention directives were issued against the accused. You will also be notified about arrest records, the release of bench warrants, and more. However, the background report will fail to explain the ramification of a warrant on the life of an offender.

An active warrant from Buchanan County is certainly not an order that should be ignored. Neither the judiciary nor the police takes these directives for arrests lightly. In fact, cops make a fervent effort to detain offenders who have outstanding warrants to their name at the earliest possible opportunity.

Orders for detention that cannot be served do not go out of effect but are stored for later use in the police’s crime database. On their part, the county clerk and the magistrate’s offices also make a note of pending warrants that are yet to be returned.

When it comes to the execution of arrest warrants, police officers get several liberties, not the least of which is the ability to affect the arrest inside the suspect’s home. To facilitate the quick detention of a person with a warrant to his name, information on these directives is sent to a central repository. Officers will frequently browse through this database when making arrests in any part of the country. As a civilian looking for crime history data, you can go to:

  • The sheriff: Walnut St, PO Box 970, Grundy, Virginia 24614
  • The magistrate: 1012 Walnut St, Grundy, VA 24614
  • The clerk of court: PO Box 929, Grundy, Virginia 24614
