Warrant Records Search – The Easy Way to Find Out If Someone Has Been Arrested
Warrant records are one of the most sensitive types of public information. They tell you the whereabouts and status of a person. In this article I will go over how to search for and access them in Santa Cruz County, Arizona.
Searching for these documents is quite simple. You can do so via the local police department in your area or via the courthouse. The latter method is preferred, as it affords you the greatest level of accessibility. You can go down to the court house yourself or have someone else do it for you. It really depends on your comfort level.
There are three places you can go to get this information. If you’re willing to spend some time searching online you can find many websites that specialize in these documents. Some are free, others require a small fee and others just require you to input your information once and you get the information for life. The information is usually available in a matter of minutes.
If you’re not comfortable using the World Wide Web then you can always go down to the court house and fill up a public records request. Most people will pay a small fee to do this, as it is quite an undertaking. If you are familiar with searching in a computer you can easily do it this way. Just type in the person’s name, date of birth and social security number. It will take a few minutes to do and will provide you with your results.
If you are more comfortable doing things this way, you could also contact the local sheriff’s office. However, this can be extremely time consuming. These records are only held for a short period of time before they are electronically destroyed. So if you want to do an intensive search you may want to consider a different route.
Whatever route you decide on, remember to use a reputable website. Some of the lesser ones will search for free but there is usually a catch to this. Most of these sites do not update their databases frequently and so their results may be inaccurate. They might also share information that is outdated and this can put you at risk.
Using a professional search service is the best way to get hold of accurate warrant records. The company I use is called Nodis, and they have been in business for 10+ years. Although they are relatively new, their quality of work is already proven. You will not have any problems finding the information that you need and the prices are very reasonable.
If you are interested in doing a more intensive search then feel free to use their services. There is a small one-time fee that is quite reasonable. As with anything, just be sure that you are getting what you pay for. With Nodis you can search for a person’s warrant records, address history, location history, background checks, bankruptcies, and many other useful information. It’s well worth considering trying this method.
