San Fernando and Van Nuys Arrest Warrants
Arrest warrants, while similar to bench warrants, are initiated differently. Arrest warrants are issued when a judge has "probable cause" to believe that a person has committed a crime, and that the accused person poses a risk of evading arrest, presents a safety threat, or has been unavailable during an investigation.
An arrest warrant authorizes immediate arrest of that person. When an arrest warrant is issued, police agencies will generally attempt to make an arrest as soon as possible. Once the arrest is made, the person will remain in jail until bail is posted, or a judge orders a release.
In some cases, when a person with an arrest warrant voluntary walks into court, depending on the circumstances, the judge may order O.R. (own recognizance) Release. Thus, it is important to take proactive steps to resolve a warrant.
