Arrest warrants from Union County, New Jersey can spell a lot of trouble for the person in whose name they are issued. For one, warrants are never released on the basis of anything else but hard facts which go towards helping the magistrate find probable cause. Once the judge is convinced that the police indeed have enough proof to suspect the individual in question, the active warrant is issued without further ado.

After release, these Union County arrest warrants are sent to the cops for execution. Serving a warrant implies the physical detention of the accused. There are two ways in which the arrest of an offender can be effected. The police can take him in by force or he/she may surrender of his own will. Regardless of how the custodial detention came about, information pertaining to it will be included in the arrest records maintained by the judiciary and the police.
