The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office's Warrant & EPO unit is responsible for serving Emergency Protective Orders, Domestic Violence Warrants and Warrants sent to Jefferson County from other Kentucky counties.  This unit operates 24hrs a day 7 days a week.

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 and Warrants Office, located at:

600 W Jefferson St.
Room 1002

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.
