What Are Warrant Records?

Warrant Records in Charleston County South Carolina are maintained by the Charleston Police Department. There are different types of warrants for various violations of law. A warrant is a legal document issued by a judge that authorizes law enforcement officers to arrest and detain a person if they have reason to believe that the person has committed a crime. Warrant records also include data on people who have been arrested for felonies and traffic offenses. The records can be accessed free of charge by any member of the public.

Warrant records are one of the public records that are kept in the state of South Carolina. The state creates these records and keeps them up to date. There are different categories of warrants including: traffic, felony, misdemeanor, house arrest, non-felony, sex offender, elder, bankruptcy, and many other category.

A person can only be arrested for a crime if there is an outstanding warrant out for their arrest. Warrant records allow police officers to search through criminal history databases to see if a person has any warrants out for their arrest. If a person has a warrant out for their arrest, it will not appear on their official record. Some warrants will remain on a person’s record for five years while others will disappear. When this happens, the record will be cleared but a warrant remains.

Any felony arrest will have an arrest record on the person’s record. This means that when a person is arrested and subsequently convicted of a felony, they will have their record in place. This is considered a permanent criminal record. It is possible for a person with a felony conviction to be able to get a concealed weapon permit. However, many states do not allow an individual with a felony to obtain a concealed weapon unless they have had their weapon for a period of time after their arrest and convicted of a felony.

Access to these records is usually restricted to law enforcement officials, attorneys, courts, and public records research agencies. Permit authorities can sometimes access the records, but that access is typically limited to specific departments or agencies. This means that a person with a sexual offender record would not be able to get their records released to a criminal records research agency. It is important that you check with your local courthouse to see if they have access to these types of records.

Warrant records are not considered part of a person’s permanent criminal record. Many states consider them to be a public record, but they are not made publicly available like other public records. They can not be accessed via a public records search. Instead, a warrant search must be performed through a court official. Warrant records allow authorized parties the ability to have legal access to a person’s criminal history records.
