Warrants

A warrant is a process used to get an individual to appear in court and is usually generated for one of two reasons. A warrant is issued as the result of an investigation or in a criminal case; where a bench warrant is usually issued by a judge for either failing to appear as promised or failing to pay a fine. 

Bonds are required on all warrants to ensure court appearance and can range from a 'no bond' warrant to a bond for the amount of the original charge. For any questions concerning warrants, bonds, or self turns (should it say ‘self turn-ins’ instead of self turns) you can call the Warrant Division at 701-444-7520 or, if after hours, you may request to speak with a Deputy Sheriff.

If you turn yourself in on an Arrest Warrant, fingerprints and/or a photo may be required. Whether you have a warrant that can be paid and does not require a court appearance or a warrant that you would have to post a bond, you can come to the McKenzie County Law Enforcement Center anytime, day or night, and a deputy will be glad to assist you in clearing your warrant. 


Do not attempt to detain any one, call the Mckenzie County Dispatch at 701-444-3654 to notify an officer of the person’s whereabouts or by texting to MCSOTIP to 847411.

You can also check North Dakota State Court website for current warrants.
