Wants & Warrants Search

Person arrested for outstanding warrant

What is a warrants search?

When an individual is wanted by law enforcement agencies, an arrest warrant is issued. Also when someone does not show up for their court date whether it be criminal or traffic related, a judge will sign a bench warrant for their arrest.

However, under normal circumstances, a warrant is issued for extraditable criminal offenses.

Search for warrants when doing employment screening?

Yes, but only after doing a county court or federal USDC criminal records search. A positive hit stemming from a national wants and warrants search in no way indicates any guilt on an individual, it simply means that they have pending court matters that have not yet been fulfilled. Examples of why a person may have a warrant for their arrest:

  • a person may have been found guilty of a crime, did their time, but failed to report to a probation officer. That is already another crime on their record.
  • An individual was not prosecuted in a court of law, but failed to show up for pre-trial intervention (PTI)

Should a person search for their own outstanding wants and warrants?

Absolutely. You might not be aware of an outstanding warrant for your arrest, due to an administrative oversight, unpaid traffic ticket, or a case of mistaken identity. Just think about the embarrassment when a law enforcement officer shows up at your place of employment to arrest you or being pulled for a traffic stop, and the police officer placing the handcuffs on you after running your license through the NCIC.

Conclusion

A warrants search should NOT be done as the only type of criminal background check when hiring, it should always be a supplement to a county court criminal search. Even then, An employer should carefully review results of a national wants and warrants search for their basis as it is not to be regarded as an indication of guilt in a crime. For all you know, it could be an unpaid traffic citation.
