To conduct an arrest warrant search from Franklin County, NE, you could connect with the department of clerk of court just as you could go to the police or the courts of limited or general jurisdiction. The good news for people who are keen on finding arrest records and information on active warrants is that all state offices that can shed light on the release of judicial instruments are located in the same judicial complex.

Another thing to consider is that although the police make arrests under Franklin County outstanding warrants, the judiciary holds as much information about a criminal matter as the law enforcement agency. As far as the most recent arrests are concerned, you can learn more about these from the cops.

However, the judiciary is brought into the loop because defendants cannot be detained in police custody for more than 48 hours. This holds even when there is an arrest warrant available against the accused, let alone when the court has not issued such an order.

What stands in favor of the clerk of court’s office as a likely source for background checks is that this agency can also be called upon to gather information that pertains to non-criminal cases. For instance, you could find out if a bench warrant was issued against a litigant for disobeying a direct court order. Also, you could learn about the verdict of such civil cases.

The judiciary and law enforcement work out of 405 15th Ave, Franklin, NE 68939. To contact the police through the mail, you can write to the sheriff’s office at PO Box 292, Franklin, Nebraska 68939.
