How to Look for Douglas County Warrants and Arrests
Douglas County warrants are issued by the court and delivered to the sheriff office for processing and maintenance. It is important to understand that they do not indicate guilt, but only suspicion for committing an offense which requires police investigation.
How to perform a warrant search
The computerized archives of the sheriff’s Warrant Division contain all warrants issued in the county and therefore, they should be referred to for information. You will have to contact the Division directly and inquire about a specific person. They can be reached at 8470 Earl D. Lee Blvd. Douglasville, Georgia 30134. Telephone: 770-920-7141.
The sheriff also offers a criminal background service through which you can track down Douglas County warrants. Searchers are required to visit the Record Division and provide an official ID with a picture before asking for access to criminal records.
How to locate the county and state’s inmates
The sheriff office manages an electronic portal to help you find Douglas County arrest records. It contains an inquiry tool through which you can locate people in custody according to name, race, gender and booking date.
Obtaining information on Georgia arrests
To track a person’s criminal activity throughout the state, we strongly recommend two official sources:
- The Georgia Technology Authority maintains an online data bank that will allow you to carry out a statewide criminal record check. The major disadvantage of this tool is that it requires a sign up process that will reveal your identity and ask you for your credit card number. The service costs 15 dollars per search, which is quite expensive.
- To locate an inmate in GA correctional facilities, refer to the GDC’s computerized offender search. It reveals plenty of information on active inmates, which includes a mugshot, physical description, most recent institution, aliases, offense details and release date.
Inquiring about Douglas County court records
To find criminal (and civil) cases, you need to contact the Clerk of the Superior Court at 770-920-7441. You will most likely be asked to file an open record request. The Georgia Open Records Act promises you access to governmental files which will be revealed upon demand unless the case in hand is under active investigation.
Finding registered sex offenders
Douglas County warrants and jail records are important elements in every background check, but it is also vital to be able to determine whether the people in your life have a history of sexual violence. You don’t want your kid’s nanny or the one you are dating to be a sex predator. We, therefore, strongly advise that you use the state’s online registry to locate former sex felons by name, address, email or phone number. This service is free of charge and open to everyone.
