The possibility of having an outstanding warrant for your arrest can be a scary scenario. When a warrant is issued for an individual, the police are authorized to apprehend the individual, usually by arrest. The arrestee can be bailed out of jail in some instances, however, many times the individual cannot be released until he has appeared before a judge. Warrants must be issued by a judge, and can be issued for a variety of reasons such as a missed court date or if you are a person of interest in an open criminal investigation. The Monterey County Clerk of Courts office maintains a record of all persons with outstanding warrants in Monterey, California.

Go to the Monterey County Clerk of Courts office, located at 1200 Aguajito Road, Monterey, California 93940.

Locate the Criminal Division of the Clerk of Courts.

Ask a representative to view the list of open arrest warrants in the county. The list will be arranged in alphabetical order, sorted by the wanted party’s last name.
