Active Arrest Warrants – How to Find Out How Many Criminals Live in Your Neighborhood?

Do you know where the criminals are in your area

I was talking to someone recently about the importance of doing regular background checks on yourself to make sure that you don’t have any arrest warrants and that your records are correct. I was shocked and amazed by what this person told me.

I said that if you wanted to avoid the stress and financial loss, not to mention the embarrassment that would happen to you if the police came and arrested you on a warrant unexpectedly one day then you have to make regular checks to see if you have an arrest warrant anywhere in the country. If you know that you have a warrant then you can get a lawyer and go and hand yourself in voluntarily which not only is the right thing to do but it will also lead to the best outcome for you.

Criminals avoid active arrest warrants by moving state

I must have touched a nerve in the stranger that I was talking to because what he said to me next left me speechless. He laughed and told me that both he and his wife both had active arrest warrants in a different state and they simply moved to avoid them. Apparently they had warrants in other states dating back years and they haven’t been caught yet.

The police can’t afford to enforce arrest warrants from other states

He explained to me that police departments aren’t keen to chase people once they move out of the state that they committed the offence in. Apparently it’s too expensive to cooperate with other police departments and I guess “out of state – out of mind”.

The person that told me this then informed me that moving state was a very common method of evading the law and that he knew of many more criminals living in the area that had moved to escape capture in states where they had committed crimes.

Anyone in your area could have an active arrest warrant

You probably thought that most criminals get caught sooner or later which meant that the chances of you coming in contact with them was low. This is what I thought too but the conversation with this stranger has opened my eyes. There could be a lot more people with criminal records or arrest warrants living in your area than you thought.

Find out who the criminals are

So what can you do about it? You can do what I did right after my conversation with the stranger. Sign up at a public records web site where you can check out the arrest warrants, criminal records and other background information on anyone you want. It’s not expensive compared with the peace of mind that you’ll get from knowing where the criminals are. Start by checking out the people that you have most contact with and especially anyone that you are considering hiring to do any work for you. Then you can check out all the people that live in your area.

If you are brave then you can tip off the police about the whereabouts of these criminals trying to evade warrants. The least you should do is stay away from them and don’t invite them into your home.

    The police may not come after you for years but that arrest warrant will never go away. They will wait until you get stopped for a traffic offence or commit some other misdemeanor. I would not want to be looking over my shoulder all the time.
