When seeking a warrant, the Armstrong County, sheriff's department is also expected to follow the legally prescribed procedure laid down as per the statue of limitations. The process to seek a warrant starts once the law enforcement agency compiles all case related facts into a writ.

This is presented in court for the consideration of the sitting magistrate. However, sometimes the evidence available in the case is just not enough to establish probable cause. In this case, two recourses are available:

  • The magistrate may refuse to grant a warrant
  • Witnesses and the victim can be called on to strengthen the case and ensure that probable cause exists.

A signed document issued through this procedure is called an active arrest warrant and through the use of this instrument, a person can be taken into custody regardless of time and place.

If ever an active arrest order cannot be executed, it is not recalled. Instead, the document is simply stored in an electronic format under a distinct category called outstanding arrest warrants. The FBI database that houses criminal history records can exclusively be accessed by law enforcement agencies.

So, if you are wondering about the possible involvement of an acquaintance in illicit activities, the only way to get the information you want is to approach the local sheriff's department. Their office in Armstrong County, Indiana is located at 500 E Market St, Kittanning, Pennsylvania 16201. Calling them on 724-548-3265 is also possible but this form of communication will not work for a warrant search.
