The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution outlines the legal requirements for a U.S. citizen to be served with an arrest warrant. It requires that the judge in the case be disinterested (unbiased) and that the law enforcement agency tell the truth to the best of its ability and have probable cause to suspect a person of a crime. When an arrest warrant is issued by a judge, it allows any legitimate law enforcement professional to arrest the individual in question upon sight so that a trial may be scheduled.

Bench warrants are slightly different; these are orders by a court or judge for an individual to appear in court. These often have to do with parole and probation hearings, but a bench warrant can also be issued to induce a witness to appear before the court to testify.

Any law enforcement agency in New York State can run a warrant search for you and tell you if there is an active warrant out for you. You simply have to appear in person at the law enforcement office with a valid form of identification. This is risky, however, if you aren’t ready to be arrested on the spot if the search turns up an active warrant. You may prefer to search for this information online.

  1. Hi,
    I am a UK citizen – who was given a pink ticket in New York in lower Manhatten for drinking in public. I then continued on my holiday (a road trip around the US ) for 6 weeks. I completely lost track of ticket and therefore left the USA 6 weeks later without paying the fine. I understand now, that there could be a bench warrant out for my arrest. I am returning to Boston this summer and need to pay this, or at least check if a warrant has been issued. I contacted a New York lawyer, his fee is 650 USD.
    Just curious if I can find this out for myself. I have tried calling the clerks office, no-one answers. Thank you
