Generally, the police choose to use an arrest warrant to apprehend an alleged criminal unless the person is arrested at the scene of the crime or is found to be in possession of illegal substances, arms etc. The process for the procurement of an active arrest warrant, while straight forward, is one that has to be followed judiciously.

The sheriff's department approaches the local criminal court with a written affidavit which forms the basis of the magistrate's decision on whether or not a warrant ought to be issued. If the information provided establishes probable cause, an active arrest order is issued. Such an order is almost always immediately executed but in the rare case that it isn't, the document is simply stored in the police database at various levels.

So, if you are interested in a warrant search, you should definitely visit the local precinct or the sheriff's Office of Sullivan County, TN. It is located at 140 Blountville Byp, Blountville, Tennessee 37617. The records department can also be contacted over the phone by dialing 423-279-7500 but they will not offer information on arrest records over the phone.
