If you have a complaint against another party, and would like to attempt to take out an
Arrest Warrant, or if you need a Summons for the party to appear in court, you
must first file a Complaint at the County Attorney’s Mediation

After that, a judge will decide if it is worthy of a Warrant or a Summons,
and order the appropriate law enforcement agency to find, serve and/or
arrest the offending party.
