If the authorities in Orange County, California, intend to arrest an individual, they must seek an arrest warrant against him. The process of issuing such a warrant is based on a preliminary request of Orange County Police Department. The arrest warrant will become an active arrest warrant only after it had been signed by a sitting judge. The judge has the privilege to reject the police’s request. Alternatively, he will sign the warrant if sufficient evidence for committing a crime by an individual against whom the warrant is issued is presented by the police. In any case, an arrest warrant against an individual is limited to the county and state where it is issued. In other states, the warrant has no legal force. It is important to know that if the warrant is not fulfilled, it becomes an outstanding arrest warrant.
