Maine police officers to receive warrants by email

An average of 100 warrants a day are issued from courthouses around the state

PORTLAND, Maine — The state court system took a step into the digital world this week when it electronically transmitted 41,000 existing arrest warrants into the system used by public safety officials around the state.

This will allow police officers to receive warrants more quickly and to access them from their cruisers, Chief Justice Leigh I. Saufley said Tuesday in a telephone interview. It also will alert them more quickly when a warrant has been withdrawn.

"This is part of an overall effort by the judiciary to improve public safety," she said. "It ties in with various other efforts, including entry screening at courthouses. We want people to be as safe as possible in the state of Maine."
