Harney County, Oregon active warrants can be found with the police, the office of the magistrate that issues such orders as well as the county clerk's department which plays an important role in all judicial sessions. Arrest warrants are solely issued at the request of the law enforcement agency in the area. So, the sheriff's department has to go to court when they need such an arrest directive with an affidavit in hand.

Despite all the information being presented in writing, the sitting magistrate may fail to see probable cause and ask the witnesses to come to offer sworn testimony in order to ascertain that the accused was indeed part of the criminal act that he is being suspected of. An active order for arrest does not go out of effect even years after its issue.

However, such orders are termed as outstanding warrants when they are held back in the police database for a while. Unlike bench warrants which expire over a set period of time, outstanding warrants have a validity of almost a century.
