New York State's Warrent Check System Is Down

Over the scanner, Wednesday night into Thursday morning:

NYPD cannot carry out warrant checks on people they are stopping on the streets.

As dispatchers have explained over and over to police officers trying to call in names that they read from the IDs of people they have stopped, "The entire New York State warrant check system is down!"

No word on what officers are doing with those people who can't be checked for priors.

This same problem with the statewide system occurred several weeks ago as well.
