Please forward the original warrant, order for the warrant, and $109.00 check payable to the King County Sheriff. Additionally, we require a completed Civil Warrant Progress Information Form. You should note that the statewide system will not permit us to enter the warrant without the defendant’s compete and accurate date of birth; we are unable to accept your warrant without this information.

When the defendant is booked, you will be contacted via the contact information (phone, voice mail, or e-mail) that you provide to our office.
