If local authorities in Jefferson, Alabama, would want to arrest an individual, then the sitting judge of the court would need to verify the existence of a “probable cause” for the arrest and detention of the individual. If a probable cause is found, the sitting judge will issue an arrest warrant.

Once the warrant is signed by the judge, it will become an active arrest warrant. In order for this to happen, the police department needs to bring enough evidence to the court so that the sitting judge can decide whether the arrest should take place or not. The law enforcement department is then responsible for the execution of the arrest warrant. The authorities in Jefferson, AL are also responsible for detaining the arrested individual.

Next, the arrested individual is brought to the court of law. Generally, arrest warrants issued against individuals in one state are limited to the county and state where they are being issued. However, there are states where the warrant issued in any other state does not have any legal force. Warrants that remain active for too long in Jefferson and which have not been fulfilled turn into outstanding warrants.
