Generally most misdemeanor warrants in all states are non-extradition warrants. Usually the warrant is in the National Crime Information System, the system the police check with your license when an investigatory stop is made for things such as speeding. The warrant will be marked either: no hold, do not extradite, non-extradition OR please hold for extradition. Most misdemeanors are non-extradition. Most felonies are extradition. If held by the police, an extradition hearing or a signed waiver must be completed before the police, issuing the warrant, come within ten days to retrieve the alleged violator.
