Warrant Program

By Sarah Goebel | 

Kentucky is testing a program that puts all outstanding warrants into a database accessible by law enforcement and courts statewide.
A review of the state's current system says Kentucky has problems with unserved warrants.
Data was gathered from all 120 counties and unserved warrants were found dating back to the 1980's.
Most of them were for nonviolent crimes, but there were thousands of felony warrants, including murder.
Officials say with the warrants program, finding out if someone is wanted elsewhere in the state should take a fraction of the time it currently takes.
