What are the procedures to have a warrant issued?
File a report with the police department. Call the Magistrate’s Office at 205-664-6835 to set up an appointment to have your report screened. Upon arrival, you will file a deposition with a magistrate. If there is probable cause, a warrant or summons will be issued. Some important points to remember: It takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour to file a warrant. There is no charge for a warrant. Once a warrant is issued it cannot be dropped or cancelled!
