In your quest for Perry County, Illinois arrest warrants related data, you are bound to visit at least one justice agency. Ideally, you should begin your warrant search at the magistrate’s office since the court is responsible for the actual release of these detention orders.

Contrary to popular perception, the sheriff’s department does not have the jurisdiction to issue a warrant. However, the police do file the affidavit, which is the precursor to the warrant hearing. This writ is a communication means used by the law enforcement agency to appraise the judiciary of the crime that has occurred and the person accused of committing it.

A Perry County active warrant is issued after much deliberation; often, the witnesses may be called in at this stage to depose under oath. However, this is only done when the facts presented in the police petition are not adequate for establishing probable cause.

Once a detention order of this nature is released, it is executed almost immediately depending on the matter’s gravity. Also, such arrest decrees do not go out of effects like bench warrants and other judicial provisions. They merely get held back in the system and are then legally termed as outstanding warrants. The police, the county clerk’s office, and the magistrate’s court have all Perry arrest records and information about active warrants. To find this data, you can go to:

  • The office of the sheriff: 12 E Water St, Pinckneyville, Illinois 62274
  • The office of the magistrate: 3764 State Route 13-127, Pinckneyville, IL 62274
  • The office of the clerk of court: 2219 Payne Street, Tell City, Indiana 47586
