The FBI hosts a central database of criminal information that contains details on arrest records from all the 51 states. The central repository has information on outstanding arrest warrants and houses all information about crimes in the country over the last several decades. Unfortunately, this information can only be accessed by law enforcement agencies.

Members of the public in Thurston County, WA, are encouraged to approach the local Sherriff’s Department to seek arrest records and conduct warrant searches. However, before you visit the law enforcement agency’s office in your area, it would certainly help to know what arrest warrants are and how they can be used.

At this point, it would help to know that if an arrest warrant is out in your name, you risk arrest by visiting the sheriff’s office in your county. You may also be taken into custody if you are involved in the smallest legal issue as this will make the peace officer involved in the matter run your name through the FBI database.

In case of felonies and misdemeanors, an arrest order is only issued when the police approach the criminal court. A written petition has to be submitted for the consideration of the court. The writ will detail the crime and mention information about the suspect, and specify the evidence collected.

If this is sufficient for filing an accusatory instrument, an active arrest warrant is issued. Arrest orders stored in the nationwide database are called outstanding warrants, and these are simply detention orders that have not been executed yet.

For information on arrest records in Thurston County, Washington contact the law enforcement agency located at 2000 Lakeridge Drive SW, Olympia, Washington 98502.
