Only the criminal courts have the authority to issue arrest warrants in Jasper County, Missouri. While the civil tribunals also have the option of issuing detention orders that can be used to call in offenders and individuals who fail to follow court directives, such decrees vary significantly from arrest orders issued in criminal cases.

For one, an active warrant, as it is called, is only issued in a criminal case when the police approach the local judicial entity for such an order. The sitting magistrate will carefully consider all case facts to ensure that there is indeed enough reason to accuse the individual in question of the crime before signing the warrant.

Also unlike bench warrants, an order for arrest released in a criminal matter will not lapse. In fact, such decrees stay valid in the system for 99 years or more. This is done to ensure that the police can arrest the offender at any time and at any place without going through the hassle of requesting a new warrant from the judiciary.

You can find information on both bench as well as outstanding warrants from Jasper County when you request a background check on an individual. As a matter of fact, along with details on arrest warrants in the name of a person, you will also be able to find prior arrest records through such an inquiry. However, a warrant search will not bring back results pertaining to civil matters.

For this, you will have to approach the Jasper county clerk's office and look through their court dockets. The contact information of all state agencies that entertain requests for a warrant search are mentioned below
