The three government agencies which provide information pertaining to arrest warrants from McDonough for the purpose of public scrutiny include:

  • The office of the sheriff: 110 S McArthur St, Macomb, Illinois 61455
  • The office of the magistrate: 232 E Jackson St, Macomb, IL 61455
  • The office of the clerk of court: Same as above

Besides maintaining records pertaining to active warrants and other legal provisions used in both criminal and civil matters like bench warrants, search warrants, etc, these agencies also play an active role in the issue of the detention order.

For instance, the police file the complaints in court which forms the basis of the prosecution’s case against the accused in the bail hearing. While the offender is not present at this time in the courtroom nor does such a trial involve a jury, the police and state prosecution still have the task of proving to the sitting magistrate that the person in question was indeed responsible for the criminal act committed before a McDonough County active warrant is released.

Once the accused has been taken into custody, the police will maintain the arrest records and send the original copy of the warrant to the office of the magistrate which also maintains a record of the detention of the individual in question. These records are also furthered to the department of the county clerk.
