The Ohio Department of Public Safety and InnovateOhio have launched a new interface to LEADS that allows for the quick creation and electronic submission of warrants and protection orders by law enforcement. The anywhereWARRANT system is available to all police departments and courts in the state for no charge and can be integrated with record management vendor systems already in place.
The system allows for a quick and easy process to generate an ewarrant from an officer’s squad car or mobile device. It can then be sent to a judge via a secure video conference tool if needed. The ewarrant process saves officers hours of unpaid overtime to file paperwork. It also increases the likelihood that an officer can arrest a suspect before they are tipped off and flee.
While it may seem like an invasion of privacy to allow police to ask for a breathalyzer test, this is a good thing for the community. By allowing authorities to get access to an individual’s blood, it can help them detect alcohol and other drugs in the body before they can cause a serious crash or even kill someone. However, it is important to remember that anyone has the right to refuse a breathalyzer test. Refusing a breathalyzer can still lead to a DUI, which carries far more serious consequences than a traffic violation. If you have been arrested for a DUI, it is important to contact an experienced Chicago DUI attorney. Ewarrants
