A certain procedure has to be followed when you are interested in a Charles County arrest warrant search. Generally, you will have to submit a formal application informing the police or the MD judiciary about the subject and offering details about yourself, the applicant. Depending on how the request is handled, you can get the results immediately or may have to wait for a week or more to receive a response.
For instance, if you are looking for outstanding warrants from Charles County through the court dockets database of the county clerk's office, you can get immediate results by using the public service terminals at the justice center. Of course, you will have to offer some form of identification to use this service.
Similarly, if you are availing the services of a third party information vendor, they will provide access to their database of arrest records and active warrants through their website. An online inquiry will rarely take more than a few seconds. In contrast, if you drive down to the office of the sheriff or the magistrate, the request can be handled in a few hours or on the same day.
Understandably, mailed in warrant search inquiries take the longest. Usually, it will take any department at least a week to get back to you if you send your application through mail. The charges for your inquiry will also be based on the medium that you use to initiate the search for arrest warrants from Charles County.
