These warrants include ordinance violations, traffic offenses, misdemeanors, felonies, and any other court issued offenses. The warrant office enters all warrants into the state and nationwide computer systems and as such is responsible for the information provided. In addition, the warrant office maintains records regarding quashed, expired, and executed warrants.
The sworn department is responsible for locating and arresting any and all persons who have an active warrant issued in Will County, by any police agency in the state of Illinois, or any other law enforcement agency outside our state.
