Ewarrants are digital, real-time warrants that allow law enforcement officers to create and share a warrant from anywhere, on any device. Officers can complete a warrant application using the mobile app, a browser-enabled secure video conference with a judge or an eWarrants interface that connects directly to an existing judicial system’s warrant database. The resulting eWarrant is automatically populated and can be instantly sent to a judge for review, approval and service. This allows a judge to respond from their office, field or patrol car – eliminating the need for them to return to their desks. The eWarrant process allows police departments to decrease crime while improving officer safety by allowing them to act immediately upon probable cause – thus reducing the possibility that a suspect will be tipped off and flee.
