Anyone who is interested in searching for basic information on arrest warrants or arrest records in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, should first consider a few things about the official issuing procedure of a warrant. Before local law enforcement officers can start to search for the individuals in question, the warrants must first become active. This requires a sitting judge to thoroughly analyze all of the evidence that has been brought to the court of law by the police officers. The judge must find a probable cause that is plausible enough for an arrest warrant to be issued. Once they do, they may issue the warrant.

Upon signing the warrant, the officers who brought the evidence may begin the search, detention and incarceration of the people whose names are listed on the warrant. The duty of the search and incarceration process falls on the shoulders of the local police department in Allegheny County. Provided it is not properly executed on time, or if the person being charged cannot be found, it will become outstanding warrant of arrest.

In some cases, a person or persons may have an outstanding warrant issued in their name without their knowledge of it. In this case, they can find this information personally and prevent a possible unexpected arrest in the future. The Sherriff’s office, however, does not disclose any information regarding warrants over the phone, so an individual must personally go to the office located in the Allegheny County Courthouse, Room 111.
