The numbers provided are the total of all the reported address locations on arrest warrants, respectively, in each municipality. The arrest warrants may be for either a Failure to Appear (FTA) or a Violation of Probation (VOP) proceeding.  The forwarded report lists each of these warrants by address locations, which may be a post office or a geographical location associated with each municipality. These are “post office” locations reported as part of the address of record on the arresting documentation associated the re-arrest warrant for a person residing in the indicated municipality that are still outstanding.  It is recognized that an address of record may not be current location of the offender; however, the address of record was that reported by the offender on the date of the arrest or that associated with the violation of probation. The arrest may have been made by the law enforcement agency responsible for municipality indicted on the report or from another law enforcement jurisdiction.

The report indicates the number of re-arrest warrants for failure to appear in a criminal or motor vehicle proceeding and the number of re-arrest warrants for a violation of probation proceeding.  These numbers are from a data system, the Paperless Arrest Warrant Network, which is also known as PRAWN.  PRAWN presently contains detailed information on arrest warrants, including the offender’s name and address.  The PRAWN system is available to all organized municipal police departments and to all the State Police Troops.  PRAWN is operated and maintained by the Division of Superior Court Operations, Office of the Chief Court Administrator, Judicial Branch. 

PRAWN provides electronic space for law enforcement agencies, which have made attempts to serve a warrant on an offender, to indicate information on the service attempt(s) as well as additional investigatory information relating to the offender. This information is then available to all other law enforcement agencies.

PRAWN is an electronic data system from which arrest warrants for failure to appear (FTA) and warrants for violation of probation (VOP) may be served regardless of the location of the originating warrant.  Under separate statute, offenders arrested on a warrant may be presented to the court of jurisdiction associated with the location of the arrest or to the jurisdiction from which the warrant was issued.

The report is scheduled to be provided on about the 15th of each month.

Should there be questions on the arrest warrants for failure to appear associated with a municipality, please contact the law enforcement agency for the municipality.
