Judge's dashboard with electronic warrant signature

What is an electronic warrant?

Electronic warrants are digitally produced authorizations electronically signed by a judge that allow law enforcement to act on a search or arrest legally.

Digital warrants save precious time during remote operations by allowing law enforcement to rapidly obtain an official warrant without driving to a separate physical location.

Traditional warrant processing creates pain points for everyone involved.

Antiquated warrant processing suffers from manual paperwork delays, asynchronous information, and the need for physical signatures.

Law Enforcement

Tracking down an available judge and traveling to their location is inefficient, using valuable time and budget resources.


Geographical barriers between officers, judges, and staff interfere with the swift execution of warrants.

The Public

Quick processing and serving during the warrant process is crucial for due process and public safety.

Court Staff

Coordinating paperwork from multiple parties across departments and locations is disjointed and time consuming.

Modernize your warrant process with a system that fits your agency's workflow.

Our electronic warrant system connects judges, law enforcement, and clerks in real time and is customizable to your current requirements and procedures.

Integrate with local, state, and NCIC databases

The system registers warrants with needed databases and automatically removes warrants once executed.

Enable Remote Operations with eSignature

Increase location flexibility by allowing officers to stay in the field, preserving critical evidence, including toxicology results.

Increase Officer and Public Safety

Precise, real-time information and accurate warrant reporting are vital for protecting law enforcement agents and supporting community safety.

Track Warrant Status

View the status of any warrant at any time. Filter warrants by status: active, executed, cancelled, expired, and more.

Track Service Attempts

Keep a secure, detailed record of all attempts by law enforcement to serve the warrant.

Attach Supporting Documents

Include all case documents, narratives, and pertinent information for efficient judicial review.

How It Works

The clerk or officer creates a warrant request in the system.

Forms for all warrant types (including bench, search, arrest, social media, etc.) are easily accessible and can be filled out on any device. The case narrative and all relevant supporting case documentation are included to expedite judicial review.

Creating the warrant request
Judge Warrant Inbox Example

Available judges are notified for review by their preferred contact method.

Shorten processing time from hours to minutes by notifying judges directly via text, call, or email.

The responding judge can electronically sign the warrant, amend its provisions, deny, or request additional information as necessary.

Based on jurisdictional requirements, the swearing-in process can be recorded and stored in the system.

If approved, the active warrant is routed to law enforcement for service.

The active warrant is also submitted to relevant local, state, and national databases (including NCIC) for increased officer and public safety.

A detailed PDF of the official active warrant can be exported, printed, and filed based on your agency's procedures.

Warrant Modifications and File Uploads

Modifications and Warrant "Packing"

Additional information and tasks can be assigned to clerks or officers with built-in secondary approval methods.

Staff can add needed information to the warrant record that was not initially available.

Once served, all parties are notified, and the warrant is removed from local, state, and national databases.

Once the search or arrest has been performed, the officer marks the warrant as served.

Upon being marked as "served," the record is automatically purged from databases in accordance with regulatory requirements.

Staff receives confirmation notice by text/email that the warrant has been served and no further action is required.
