Warrant Records Search

Warrant Records in Pottawattamie County, Iowa are maintained by the Polk County Sheriff’s Department. This department is mandated to keep a record of all arrests under the charge of a crime being committed in Polk County, Iowa. In order to search out warrants or arrests, you can contact the sheriff’s department at any time or place. At this point in time, they are not able to post these records online due to federal privacy laws protecting individual’s rights to privacy.

If you have an idea of the person that you are investigating then you can run a record search on them yourself. To do this, simply contact the courthouse where the person lives and make the request for the records. To be legally able to search the records, it is best to contact the court house itself and make the request in writing. The courts will then forward you the paperwork that is needed to be filed along with your request for search. Once you do this you will be able to search the person’s background for warrants that are outstanding.

It is possible that warrants for criminal activity were issued while the individual was still living in another state. In cases of mistaken arrest or civil infractions, it may be difficult to get records of criminal activity from another state. However, you can easily search the person’s records in Iowa if they are in this state at the time of their arrest. To do this, contact the county sheriffs department for the state in which the person was arrested.

It is not uncommon for someone who has been arrested for a warrant to have an active warrant out for their arrest in another state. While some warrants that are issued are not renewed, other warrants for arrests remain active until the time they are lifted. If a criminal activity warrant for your arrest remains active then you are not allowed to do anything to prevent its issuance. If arrested for any type of criminal offense during your lifetime, you should consult with a criminal attorney and learn what your options are as far as getting a copy of your own criminal arrest record.

You will be required to fill out an application for a search of your warrant records. In some cases, you will need to provide the names of the arresting officers as well as their personal details. To perform a search of your warrant, you must first locate the records office where the warrant was originally found. Then you will have to fill out the request forms and pay a fee to obtain the desired records.

Criminal record searches are public record. You can search for criminal history information about anyone you want. People who are searching for employment, dating, or somebody to take care of their children can use these searches as well. If you are an employer looking to hire somebody then performing a background check on them is a smart move.
