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. We did not find any outstanding New York warrants for the person you mentioned. You can also verify this warrant information with the New York sheriff department or NY court clerk. It’s often the case that recent warrants are delayed when being available for 3rd party public record databases.

    1. Our New York warrant record database did not show any outstanding NY warrants for Bianca. If this was a recent New York warrant you might also want to verify this information with your local NY police department or NY county courthouse clerk. It is common to have several days to weeks delay when warrants are reported as public record.

  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

        1. Good to know, thanks for the update on the New York warrant search. Sometimes there are delays when this information is reported to the public domain.

          1. Hello, my previous message either never reached you or it was removed., I understand that your implying to new warrants not yet recorded into the system., i was actually referring to allegations made by a NYPD detective during 2015 to the relatives of one of the subjects listed above alleging there was a warrant in their name since 1999.

            Both RSO agents abroad and FBI agrees with your assessment that there was never any warrant but that one subject i listed was publicly indicted,

            Is it possible that a detective or otherwise in the same prescient can issue a warrant with out the process of a prosecutor or judge (at least back in the 1990s) ?

            Thanks

          2. That is a good question. As far as we know a warrant must be issued by a federal, state or county court. It’s uncertain why these warrants are not listed in our database. We can only speculate that since these are older NY warrants that they have fallen off or are old enough where they were missed in the updated NY warrant reports we receive. That being said, it’s best practice to take the word of a government agency, like you have, instead of a public record website since not all warrant information is reported accurately or might be removed because it’s an older record.

            We certainly appreciate all the feedback you’ve given us and we will make a note of your inquiry
