In Tulare County, California, an arrest warrant is issued after a judge determines that the evidence presented would lead a reasonable person to believe that a crime or breach of the law has occurred. This evidence is termed probable cause. Once the judge signs the document, it becomes an active warrant and allows California police to locate and detain the subject.
If the subject cannot be found or served in a reasonable time frame, the active warrant is then deemed to be an outstanding warrant for arrest. The outstanding warrant remains in force till an arrest is carried out, bail is delivered, or the subject presents itself to court.
