Warrant Database to Be Statewide

Frankfort, KY – A new digital system for court warrants is expanding to all Kentucky counties. It is expected to help law enforcement officers reduce backlogs of unserved warrants. The state Attorney General's office has received almost $4 million in federal funding to expand a five-county pilot program to all 120 counties. The money will provide county attorney's offices with computers, networking equipment, personnel and training. It allows officers to view all of Kentucky's active warrants in a centralized database. And officers can save time instead of contacting another county about possible outstanding warrants.
