In Josephine County, Oregon arrest warrants are strictly issued at the behest of the sheriff's office. The local law enforcement agency will usually submit a formal complaint to procure an active warrant when an arrest cannot immediately be made after an illicit incident has occurred or when the act was being committed.

Probable cause has to exist for the police to justify a custodial detention. However, this can only be ascertained when there is witness testimony that indicates the involvement of the accused in the matter and such evidence is collected within a few hours of the incident. If the proof is primarily scientific or circumstantial in nature, the judiciary has to be notified.

The sitting magistrate is legally bound to closely study the case and all evidence collected in reference to it. This is done in a bid to ensure that a clear probable cause emerges that is enough for any person to hold the suspect responsible for the criminal act. An active warrant is possibly the most powerful of all legal instruments.

So, it is rightly also one of the only judicial provisions without a fixed expiry date. In fact, it is not uncommon to find outstanding warrants in the Josephine County police database that are at least a few decades old. Regardless of how old a warrant is, the police will still use it to effect an arrest as soon as the perpetrator is found.

When you initiate a formal warrant search through the office of the sheriff or a judicial agency, you will be granted access to arrest records from the state along with information on all arrest warrants issued in the name of your subject.
