As far as local governance is concerned, you get three options for seeking an arrest warrant search in Butler County, NE. Two of the agencies listed below that are, the offices of the sheriff and the magistrate court, are directly involved in the issue of active warrants and in making arrests under such provisions. However, the office of the county clerk imparts a more passive role.

The sheriff’s office does the maximum amount of work when it comes to arrest warrants from Butler County. They submit the accusatory instrument, which is used as the basis to hold the pre-warrant hearing. This document contains the information that the judiciary would need to take a call on whether the detention directive ought to be released or not.

The magistrate’s office has a more authoritative role as they decide on whether the evidence collected by the police is enough to show that there is probable cause on which the suspicion of complicity can be based. With the signatory authority for active warrants, the magistrate can set the conditions for arrests and release.

Finally, the county clerk’s department has only one job in the entire process- to keep information on the court proceedings. So, they will have information on Butler County arrest records and outstanding warrants in their court dockets database. Not only criminal matters but also civil cases are docketed. To get a warrant search done through these agencies, you can go to:

  • The sheriff: 451 5th Street, David City, Nebraska 68632
