The police will only seek arrest warrants in Richland County, Illinois when they have irrefutable proof against the accused. The reason for this can be found in the statute of limitations and the criminal code of the state. An active warrant can solely be issued on the basis of evidence that points to the culpability of the person who is accused of the crime.

This proof has to be strong enough to make even a regular Joe believe that the criminal act was indeed a handy work of the individual against whom the police want the warrant to be issued. In order to ensure that this degree of certainty exists in the matter, the sitting magistrate may call in one or all the witnesses to offer sworn testimony.

Only after this process will an active warrant finally reach the county police. Because the judiciary is directly involved in the process of warrant issue, the sheriff's department as well as the office of the magistrate will keep arrest records and information on active and outstanding warrants from Richland.
