Perry County Judge works to reduce unserved warrants

Many arresting agencies across the state are now using e-warrants to improve the efficiency of serving warrants.

The amended order instructs the Perry County Sheriffs Office to switch from e-warrants to paper warrants until officers are properly trained with the electronic warrant training.

E-warrants allow arresting agencies to search warrants statewide, while paper warrants limit that search to the county where the warrant was issued.

Chief Deputy Tony Eversole agrees that e-warrants are beneficial but he says there are many black holes in the system.

Eversole says their officers are trained but serving more than 1000 warrants per month isn't an easy feat.
