Why is it that these arrest warrants are never served until that person finally comes into contact with the law due to either their own stupidity or by breaking additional laws? Don't the police go out and try to find these people who have outstanding warrants? It sure seems like there are an awful lot of people committing terrible crimes where it is later found out that they had an outstanding warrant for their arrest. And if the police actively searched for people with warrants (many of which can be easily found) that we'd save the good citizens of this country a lot of grief.

There are thousands upon thousands of outstanding warrants in Franklin Co. alone. The Sherriff's deputies will try and find you for F1-3 (Big Boy Felony) warrants but most low tier felonies and all misdemeanors they will not actively pursue due to lack of manpower. I'd wager that they would need to double their number of deputies out in the county to actively pursue all warrants. That's not fiancially possible at all.
