Union County, Tennessee arrest warrants are judicial orders issued by the local criminal tribunal. While such an order comes from the court, the magistrate will seldom issue the decree without police intervention in the matter. The reason for this is quite simple. In order to issue an active warrant, the court needs case facts and these are held by the police.

So, to release an arrest order, the court has to rely on the sheriff's office to furnish an affidavit that will describe the crime and the involvement of the accused in it. Once this petition reaches the office of the magistrate, it is deliberated upon to ensure that the police do have enough reason to believe that the said crime was indeed the handy work of the alleged offender.

Upon careful scrutiny, if probable cause emerges in the case, an active warrant is almost immediately granted. This order never goes out of effect. In fact, outstanding warrants can stay in the police system till such time that the accused is arrested. Cops don't need to have a copy of the order when nabbing the criminal.

However, the warrant will have to be provided if the arrestee or his council asks to see it. When you need to know about Union County outstanding warrants or arrest records in the name of a person, you can simply go to the office of the sheriff or the magistrate's court and get a warrant search done.
