Arrest warrants in Va. Beach now accessible online

VIRGINIA BEACH

Residents can go online to find information about arrest warrants through a new Web application launched by the Police Department this week.

For several years, residents have been able to look at basic police reports online through the department's ePro system.

Starting Wednesday, the system began including information on active arrest warrants, according to a police news release.

The goal is to encourage people to report information about wanted people, such as their whereabouts, according to the release.

The city has more than 7,000 active warrants, police said.

The new application allows residents to search by a person's name, alias and warrant type, according to the release. It also includes photos when available, and a list of the city's most-wanted people.

On Friday, that list included 238 warrants for offenses ranging from robbery to arson.

To access the warrant-search feature, go to www.vbgov.com/epro and click on "Active Warrant Search."
