Warrant Records Search

What are warrants? A warrant is a court order to a law enforcement agency allowing them to arrest, seize property for an individual who has been arrested for specified criminal activity. Warrants issued by the courts generally contain a clause that says the warrant will automatically expire if the person arrested does not appear at their court date. Warrant records list all warrants that have been issued in Scott County, Minnesota and are available for public scrutiny by the public. They are filed with the court that issued the warrant.

The best way to see someone’s warrant information is to go online and use one of the search engines on the internet that offer access to warrants. If you enter the person’s name as the name in the search box and click the search button you will receive information on whether the warrant is active or not. You can then go to the website of the county sheriff or local police office to find out further details on the warrant. Most counties now have online booking facilities which allow you to see a person’s booking information such as their name, address, charges and court records. You can also get more detailed information by requesting a copy of the person’s driving record. This is especially important if the person has traffic violations and you need to know if they were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

How are warrants issued? In most counties in Minnesota, a warrant can be issued by a judge upon the application of the police or other law enforcement officers. The warrant will state that the person named on the warrant has committed a specified crime. Warrant records include the crime the suspect has allegedly committed, the name of the arresting officer who made the arrest and more. It is important to remember that just because you see a police officer sign a warrant, it does not mean that the person is in fact guilty of the crime.

Are warrants available for sex offenders? Yes, sex offenders are listed on the sex offender registry. They are required to submit to these records and undergo re-treatment every so often. If you do an online search, you should be able to find a person’s name and address, as well as the crime they are accused of. In order to be legally defined as a sex offender, the offender must have served at least part of their sentence and must be registered with the government.

How are arrest records entered into the system? By using an automated software program called a’matcher’ the police department places an order with the courts system to access the public arrest records. When an order for arrest is entered, the matcher searches through the database until it finds an acceptable match. From there, the information is downloaded directly to the police department’s computer for processing.

Can I look up someone’s warrant? Yes, you can. You can also look up a person’s criminal activity, but the process involves paying a fee and the person you are looking up will not have the information you want. You can run a free background check from the comfort of your home. With a large number of records, this can be a time consuming and labor intensive process.
