In Hertford County, North Carolina, all arrest warrants are released by the court of the magistrate that has been given the judicial powers to deliberate in criminal cases. Such a tribunal has to be approached by the police who have to submit a petition for a warrant hearing.

In this trial, which occurs before an active warrant is issued to the police, the judge is the only judicial authority who acts as an impartial decision maker on whether the power of the state should be brought into the matter. Unlike a regular case hearing where the jury decides on the guilty verdict, at this point, only the judge has the right to rule on whether a warrant should be issued against the person in question.

However, an active warrant in Hertford County, NC is never issued just on the words of law enforcement officials; the proof available in the matter including client testimony has to be enough to accuse the individual against whom the arrest order is being sought, of the criminal act.

Once a detention decree of this kind has been issued, it stays in the law enforcement system as an outstanding warrant till such time as it is served. To find out more about arrest records or to conduct a warrant search in Hertford County, NC, you can go to or write to:
