An arrest warrant in Placer County California is a legal order from the court that gives authority to law enforcement to locate and detain the defendant. When first signed, the order is considered an active warrant. If the defendant cannot be located, then the order becomes an outstanding warrant and stays in force until an arrest is made, bail is paid, or the individual appears before a magistrate to answer for the charges. Some arrest warrant may have bail and others may mandate that the defendant be arrested without the option of bail.
