The magistrate's court in Asotin County, Washington issues active arrest warrants after due deliberation over the case related facts presented before the court by the police. Although the police can take offenders into custody without arrest warrants, the circumstances in which this would be a legally viable option are limited.

For instance, if an arrest is made while the perpetrator is involved in the act or if he is caught while fleeing from the crime scene, it would be considered legal. Similarly, if a police officer has factual reason to believe that a person will commit a criminal act in the near future or has already been involved in a felony, he/she has the right to detain such an individual. However, if these legal conditions are not met, the investigating officers have to petition the court and receive an arrest order from the judiciary.

This is done by submitting a detailed case report in court which acts as the affidavit on which the Asotin County, Washington active warrant is based. The judge may also call in the witnesses or the victim of the crime for a sworn testimony. After the completion of the legally prescribed procedure, a warrant is handed over to the police against the accused.

This type of a judicial order does not go out of effect, it merely gets stored into the police and federal crime system as an outstanding warrant from Asotin, Washington when. Because the magistrate's court issues all legal processes, they are bound to have information on such detention decrees. However, the county clerk's office also retains details on civil cases and judicial instruments used in such matters like bench warrants, etc.
