Lyon County, Kansas outstanding warrants are orders for detention which have already been issued to the police and could not be served for some odd reason hence they are currently being held in the databases of the judiciary and law enforcement for execution in the future. It would be a grave folly to assume that these orders lose their teeth just because they are old.
If anything, pending orders for arrests becomes more potent than active warrants from Lyon County because information on these is sent to the database of crime maintained by the FBI. This is a central repository which serves as a ‘go to’ point for most police officers when apprehending offenders.
When a person is stopped over or taken into custody, the arresting officers will first check for any form of identification on his person. The name on the ID is then run through the nationwide FBI repository to find any arrest warrants in the name of the accused. While they are investigating this individual, police also get details on prior arrest records which help them to determine if this person is a first time or a habitual offender.
Unfortunately, if you were to walk in to the office of the sheriff, you will certainly not be granted access to this infallible source of crime history data. For a warrant search, you will have to rely on third party databases or visit the office of local law enforcement, the clerk of court or the magistrate.
If you manage to make it to the county clerk’s department, at least you are assured access to their court dockets database. To look through a private database, fill the form on top of page or make your way to the addresses listed below to connect with the state agencies.
