How do I find out if I have a warrant for my arrest, and what do I do if I have one?

The Johnson County Sheriff's Office maintains thousands of Warrants of Arrest issued by the courts.  Many arrest warrants are served by deputies working in the field, either during vehicle stops or by visiting the last known home address or work address of the person named in the warrant.  Other warrants are served when people voluntarily surrender themselves to the Sheriff's Office after learning a warrant exists for their arrest.

Most arrest warrants will have a bond specified by the court that a person in custody is required to post before being released.  Other warrants are "No Bond" warrants, and the person must remain in custody until appearing before a Judge for further proceedings.

On those warrants that have a bond amount specified, the Sheriff's Office will accept either cash for the bond or a surety bond issued by a professional licensed bail bonding company which has been approved by the court.  Some warrants are "Cash Only" bonds and only cash is accepted.  The Sheriff's Office generally will not accept or approve an O/R Bond (release on own recognizance) or a property bond.

Misdemeanor arrest warrants may be served anywhere in the State of Missouri.  Felony arrest warrants are extraditable from anywhere within the United States.  The Sheriff's Office is very aggressive in serving arrest warrants, and extradition will generally be authorized whenever we are notified a person is in custody in another jurisdiction on a Johnson County warrant.

Any person wanting information about an arrest warrant or how to take care of an active warrant should contact the Sheriff's Office in person with proper identification.  We will make every effort to make a reasonable accommodation to allow the person to satisfy the warrant within the boundaries of the law and department policy.
