All Cherokee County, North Carolina arrest warrants are issued by the court of the magistrate like many of the other legal processes used by the judiciary to order the presence of an individual in the courtroom. However, unlike a bench warrant and summons which are released by the court without any interference from a law enforcement agency, with search orders and active warrants, the police have to formally approach the tribunal for these decrees.

The process is started by the sheriff's office with the submission of a writ in court which states why the police think that a particular act was illicit in nature and the reasons for assuming that the person in question was responsible for the crime. The evidence available at this point should be enough to make the judge accede with the inference drawn by the police.

A detention order thus issued is legally known as an active warrant; another term that is frequently encountered when discussing such decrees is outstanding warrants from Cherokee County, NC. These are nothing but pending arrest orders that have yet to be executed and have been stored in the police database from where they can be accessed by an officer of the law from anywhere in the country.
