Where Can I Find Out the Warrant Records of Someone I Want to Arrest?
By obtaining a copy of your warrant records, you can learn who has been arrested, where they were arrested, when they were arrested, and more information about the warrant. This important piece of public information is compiled into a database by the Police Information Bureau (PID), the state’s fingerprints database. In many cases, a warrant will be issued for an arrest that did not result in a conviction. They are then placed into the criminal records of the jurisdiction in which the arrest was made. This is the same type of record that would be found in a state jail.
Warrant records are different from a Criminal Records Check, however, because they are administrative documents. These are not considered to be admissible in a court of law, nor are they an accurate representation of the circumstances surrounding an arrest. Warrant records are simply what the name implies: documents that show a person’s arrest. They do not provide any details surrounding the person’s identity, why they were arrested, or what crimes they may have been accused of. Perusing a warrant’s record does not give the public any information regarding the crime that was committed, as only a law enforcement officer can do that.
A warrant is issued under various situations. The most common is for violation of some type of statute, including murder, felony, assault, theft, or drug possession. The issuance of the warrant is not based solely on the person’s appearance in court, but can be expedited if the person fails to show up as ordered. A warrant can be issued based solely on suspicion of crime, including suspicion of being involved in a sex offense. Warrant searches are also conducted periodically to prevent the issuance of the same warrant multiple times from different persons. A simple search request can give the police information as to whether a person has been issued a warrant, their address, and more.
In addition to a person’s name, warrant records also contain their aliases, maiden names, and known relatives and associates. These details are kept for reference purposes only. It is not known how many warrants were actually obtained by an individual. If one has two listed, it is likely they are both warrants for the same person. Warrant records may contain an outstanding warrant for a person’s arrest, pending arrest, or even information on an outstanding traffic ticket. This information can be used by law enforcement agencies around the state to locate an individual.
There are several ways to conduct a record search on a person. One option is to look in the local courthouse in the county where the person lives. Searching online for these records will provide limited information. Many of the databases are so new that it will take time to search through them to find out anything about a person.
If one is unable to find information about a person in their records, there are free options available. This information is often provided on the Internet, but one must use patience when looking through numerous websites to find anything of value. Many warrant searches will only return location information. Depending on where one is searching, that could mean very little or no information at all.
