Warrantnow is an electronic warrant system providing federal, state, and local jurisdictions the capability of electronically creating, approving, serving and recording many types of warrants. Warrantnow simplifies and expedites the warrant process by allowing officers to use any internet access device to log in to the web application and generate a warrant.
Simplified Warrant Processing for All Parties
The officer that has to write a warrant and needs to get that warrant signed by a judge is no longer required to go through the traditional process. Instead of having to return to the office to write the warrant, the preloaded templates in Warrantnow allow the officer to simply enter the case and suspect information using a simplified user interface (UI).
Attorneys / Legal
In some jurisdictions, the prosecuting attorney is required to review warrants before they are sent to a judge for approval. Warrantnow has standard features which allow these requirements to be easily configured to match the workflow required by each specific jurisdiction. With a Warrantnow workflow, a District Attorney can have immediate access to any warrants relevant to their pending cases.
Warrantnow helps meet a variety of needs by allowing judges to review warrants anytime without having to wait on officers to arrive at their home. Judges are now able to sign warrants while going about their day to day activities; even at night and on weekends. A judge simply needs to have access to an internet connected device, such as a smartphone or a tablet.
Effective, Efficient, and Environmentally Sound
The differences between how a warrant is processed with and without the use of Warrantnow are vast. The time and resources used for the outdated, traditional process are unpredictable and can have implications on the budgets of Law Enforcement Agencies, both large and small.
- 90% reduction in warrant processing time
- Warrants can be created in approximately 10-16 minutes, instead of days
- A jurisdiction can expect to see yearly savings that can exceed $100,000

“While I’m on -scene, at my desk, or on a smartphone, I can log into the WarrantNow app from my computer and create a search warrant. A Judge will receive a text to let him or her know that there’s a new warrant for them to sign. They log into the same system, sign it, and we have a judge-approved warrant that we can execute.”
