Plain old simple meddlesomeness may motivate some active warrant searches. Concerns about employees’ or colleagues’ actions may prompt arrest records inquiries. Beyond information required by law enforcement, perhaps the most likely (and most important) reason for a search of active warrants if someone believes that arrest warrants are listing them as wanted. If you take the time to research outstanding warrants, do not misuse any information you find, no matter the source.
