(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Members of the Ohio Governor’s Warrant Task Force will meet on Thursday.
The Task Force was established by Governor DeWine in 2019 to issue recommendations for improving Ohio’s system of issuing, prioritizing, and serving arrest warrants throughout the state. Since the establishment of the Task Force, Ohio warrants entered into the National Crime Information Center have increased by 1,128 percent.
During tomorrow's meeting, Task Force members will watch a demonstration of Ohio's new eWarrant system. At the recommendation of the Task Force, Governor DeWine called for InnovateOhio to lead the development of this free, statewide warrant database which will soon begin piloting in several counties. The system will enhance law enforcement situational awareness, allow local law enforcement agencies to track open warrants and protection orders across jurisdictions, and assist with the reduction of Ohio’s warrant backlog.
