In Sacramento County, California, the process of issuing an arrest warrant requires the existence of a body of evidence and facts called probable cause. A judge inspects the relevant data to see if any reasonable person could determine whether there was a law violation. If the likely cause is found worthy, the judge authorizes the order and becomes an active warrant.
An active warrant gives law enforcement authority to locate and detain the subject. If the individual cannot be found, the order becomes an outstanding warrant and stays in force until the suspect is arrested, appears before the court, any bail is paid, and a court date is scheduled.
