In Sanilac County the police are charged with the execution of all legal processes; this includes arrest warrants, search order as well as bench warrants. However, subpoenas and summons are not served by the cops. Also, the office of the sheriff is responsible for the preparation and submissions of the affidavit that is treated as a formal complaint while issuing an active arrest order.

A Sanilac County active warrant can exclusively be issued when the information presented in this police complaint is adequate for the sitting magistrate to establish probable cause in the case. Legally, this can be defined as evidence enough to point to the criminal nature of the act committed and proof of the fact that the said person was responsible for the crime.

This requirement of ascertaining probable cause before the issue of arrest warrants is binding on the judiciary as well as the police. So, the magistrate may often call in the witnesses at this point. This is done if the information provided by the sheriff's department is not enough to convince a reasonable person of the culpability of the individual against whom the warrant is being requested.

Information on outstanding warrants along with other judicial processes including those issued in civil matters like bench warrants, etc is kept by the court, the sheriff's department and the county clerk's office. The latter maintains the court dockets which are records of case proceedings.
