PA puts warrants in the computer
Story here. The state found there were 1.4 million unserved arrest warrants, incluing thousands for violent offenses.
It's amazing just how many criminal records such as this have never been entered into any usable database. I helped on a case here where the mess came to light. Felony arrest warrants took days or weeks, misdemeanor ones weeks or months, to get into the system. The court computer system didn't "talk" to the law enforcement one, so each warrant had to be hand-entered. A warrant for violation of probation was a state issue, so county and city authorities didn't enforce it, nor even tell state authorities when they knew where a violator was.
