To arrest an individual in Indiana County, Pennsylvania, members of the sheriff's department have to either take the accused into custody while he is committing the crime or wait to get a warrant from the court.

Because a specific process outlined by the Pennsylvania Criminal Procedure Law has to be followed in order to get an active arrest warrant against a suspect, the police have to submit a writ petition to formally request the court for such a detention order.

At this point, the magistrate is legally obligated to ensure that there exist plausible reasons for the police to justify their conclusion which implicates the person in question. The evidence gathered should be enough for any reasonable person to believe that the crime has indeed been committed by the individual against whom the warrant is being sought.

In other words, the proof mentioned in the writ does not have to be conclusive; in fact, it can simply be circumstantial, forensic and other evidence that led the investigating officer to suspect this person. If satisfied by the information presented, the magistrate signs the order which is then called an active arrest warrant.

If an arrest order is not served, it does not lapse but simply gets backlogged in a nation system of crime records maintained by the FBI; all such cold directives for detention are known as outstanding warrants.

For information on arrest records and criminal history including warrants, you will need to get in touch with the Indiana County Sherriff's Department. The law enforcement agency works out of 825 Philadelphia St Crthse, Indiana, Pennsylvania 15701 and can be contacted on 724-465-3930.

An online warrant search is undeniably a more convenient and faster option when compared to the official arrest record inquiry. For this alternative, fill the form on this website.

Indiana started with a rate of crime in double digits back in 1998 but the figure spiked up sharply by over 60% in the ten years that followed. Over this decade, local justice agencies received more than 9000 complaints of which a stunning 7000 plus were cases of theft and robbery.

The number of violent felonies was considerably lower with rapes and murders just logging in an average of about 11 and 120 incidents through this period. Although Indiana still figures in the list of areas in Pennsylvania with low crime rates, if this uptrend is not curbed, crime figures may very soon scale right up to 1000 incidents.
