Under existing law, the governing body of any municipality, by ordinance, may authorize law enforcement officers to issue citations for certain violations in lieu of performing a custodial arrest. This bill would authorize a warrant for such a violation to be sworn and issued by a judge or magistrate remotely, digitally, via video link, or by telephone and would specify that the physical presence of the affiant before the judge or magistrate is not required.
