How to Run a Search for Houston County Warrants and Arrest Records
If you need some guidance regarding a background check, you have reached the right place. The following article will explain how to find Houston County warrants and how to obtain copies of arrest records and court dockets.
A useful tip for a warrant search
The most reliable and updated information on Houston County warrants can be extracted from the sheriff office. We recommend turning to their Warrant Division regarding the county’s fugitives and wanted people. They can be reached on the phone at 478-542-2095. Their exact address is 202 Carl Vinson Pkwy, Warner Robins, Georgia 31088.
Finding Houston County arrest records
The county’s website offers an inmate locator (see ‘online service’ on the header) through which you can electronically track down current and released detainees. The database encompasses the last 30 days. For information on arrests made more than 30 days ago, try to contact the local jail at 478-218-4900.
Tracing Georgia arrest records
In case you intend to initiate a broader investigation that covers inmate incarcerated in the state’s prisons, refer to the GDC’s web-based offender search. Result show current and past inmates including their mugshots and the offenses they committed.
Running a criminal record check
The sheriff’s Records Division will perform a background check on a third person but only with a notarized permission from the person you will want to check.
If you still want to obtain background reports with no need for the explicit authorization of those being checked (for example, you wish to find out if your neighbor has a criminal record without him / her knowing about it), use the computerized felon search managed by the Georgia Technology Authority. Results include people’s statewide incarceration histories, among which are Houston County warrants and arrests. The service will cost you $15 per report.
Acquiring Houston County court records
Another option to trace a person’s criminal history is to obtain court dockets that may reveal his or her prior convictions. We recommend two electronic databases for a case search:
- The State Court Clerk operates an online search tool for locating traffic and misdemeanor records. Queries can be performed according to the defendant’s name or court date.
- The Clerk of Superior Court operates an electronic search as well. Their databases display Houston County warrants and court records for felony cases.
- For further explanations, you can turn to the State Court at 478-542-2013 and to the Superior Court (Criminal Division) at 478-218-4730
Finding registered sex offenders
The GA sex offender registry allows you to search for convicted sex felons based on their type of offense, name or address. You can also define an exact perimeter (by miles) for the search.
