A restraining order issued in California can be enforced anywhere in the United States. A restraining order issued out-of-state is valid in California and should be registered with a California court so that it can be used in other court proceedings.
Once the court issues a restraining order, the order is entered into a statewide computer system known as the California Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (CLETS) that can be accessed by all law enforcement officers.
