Warrant Records Search – Information About Warrant Searches
What are warrants? Warrants, also known as an “indictment” or ” subpoena duces tecum”, are legal documents issued by a court of law that allow authorities to arrest and detain a person. Warrants can be used for a variety of purposes such as to: detect and prevent crimes, to: protect the public from crime, to: issue tickets and arrest licenses, and to: issue warrants of arrest for criminal activity. Warrants can be issued for a person on suspicion alone, such as if a police officer suspected that a person was committing a crime, or they can be issued for specific and probable cause.
How are warrants found? A warrant application will need to be filed with the courts. If a person’s name is added to the national sex offenders registry, then their records are available to the public. Similarly, if a person is convicted of a felony, their arrest records will be made public. Certain records, such as driver’s license records, are kept confidential and only accessible by law enforcement officials and licensed agencies under the state Criminal Records Act.
Who can access these records? Anyone who has a need to know a person’s criminal history is able to obtain the records through state or federal databases. In addition, certain employment and credit records can also be accessed. Records that fall into the category of federal criminal history records are not only available to employers or government agencies, but can also be provided to the public. These records can also be requested from the person’s credit card company or bank.
Can a person be placed on a sex offender’s list? Yes, a person can be placed on the sex offenders list. The Sex Offender Registration Unit (SOOR), a division of the Department of Corrections, maintains the SOOR website where a person can find out if they are on the sex offender’s registry. If a person is wanted for questioning regarding a specified offense, they can be taken to theSOOR for processing. However, sex offenders are not always found to have commit the crime in which they were wanted, so it is possible to be on the sex offender’s registry for non-sexual offenses. This is not as useful for hiring purposes as it is for searching for a person’s background.
How are warrant records found? Warrant records can be searched in any court that holds local court records. By entering a person’s name and current address, the results will reveal if a warrant for their arrest has been issued. Some counties offer a free online search; others do not. A few places provide access to warrant records through a subscription fee.
Are there other types of records included in these records? Yes. An individual’s immigration status is also recorded. By entering a person’s date of birth, country of birth and current country of residence, a potential employer can determine if they are eligible to hire a person based on their records.
