Warrant Records Online

Warrant Records are one of the most commonly requested public records. This may be because warrants for arrests have been issued. A warrant is a legal term that permits law enforcement officers to seize someone suspected of criminal activity if they do not appear at court. In Indiana, warrants are filed by state and federal officials. In Porter County, warrants are handled by the county sheriff. To learn more about obtaining public records and searching them online, log on to the Indiana State Board of Registry of Criminal Records and click on “Warrants”.

These records list the name, address, birth date, age, gender, and reason for the arrest. People can obtain information from the records by requesting them through county courthouses or law offices. However, people usually try to find out more about a person who has an arrest warrant out of curiosity. Warrant records are not publicly accessible and to get them you need to apply for an application through the circuit court. The cost is $15 for each record search or it can be an unlimited number of searches for a fee.

These records contain more than just criminal activity. You can obtain background information about a person through this resource. Background checks are a great way to discover details about a potential hire. For instance, you can obtain criminal background check information about the potential new nanny before you employ her. In addition, you can learn about a possible employee’s credit history.

To learn more about a person’s history, you can check the records at court houses or police stations. You can learn about minor offenses and traffic offenses. You can also learn more about prior marriages and divorces. Marriage records are available through county registries, although these will not be as comprehensive as the ones found online. Divorce records are also available.

These records can be used for many reasons by different people. Companies will utilize them to check employee backgrounds and criminal histories. Law enforcement uses them to look up addresses and phone numbers to locate someone. Potential employees can also use them to check if they have any outstanding warrants out for their arrest.

To find out more about a person’s warrant history, you can run a name search using a national search engine. If the person you’re searching for has a warrant out for their arrest, you will be able to find it. This national database will provide you with the name, address, and other pertinent information that is associated with the warrant. If you don’t want to wait to see if you’ll find the information you need, you can visit your local courthouse and speak to a clerk about the matter. A warrant will stay in your records for ten years unless it is lifted, which is usually at the discretion of the judge.
