SC, Anderson County Arrest Records and Warrant Search
This article will show how to find Anderson County arrest records and warrants directing you to sufficient sources of information needed for a criminal record check.
How to locate an inmate in the county jail
The sheriff’s website contains a jail roster that presents all people that are currently in custody in the county. It also offers a search tool to help you locate a specific inmate by name. Once you get results, click on a name to open an electronic file with details such as the detainee’s physical description, mugshot, booking date, and the status of the charges filed against him or her.
You can use the Internet to perform a comprehensive South Carolina offender search on the SCDC’s website. They operate an online inmate locator you can use to track down a person in the state’s prison system.
Obtaining information on Anderson County warrants
The sheriff’s Warrant & Civil Unit Division is in charge of processing and executing arrest orders delivered to it by the court. They do not offer an electronic search option. Practically, that means that you will have to visit them in person to carry out an offline warrant search. Unless juveniles are involved, they will have no problem showing you the county’s wanted people list hoping you might have some information they can get in return.
Their location is 305 Camson Road ,Anderson, SC 29625. You can reach them on the phone via the receptionist at the sheriff office: 864-260-4400.
How to find Anderson county court records
As of January 1, 2015, the sheriff does not provide background check service to the public. What you should do, therefore, is to try and obtain Anderson County court records. They can tell you if a person has ever been found guilty of a crime.
We suggest using three statewide databases:
- South Carolina Judicial Department maintains an online records search tool. It shows a map of the state’s counties. Clicking on the desired county leads you to a database that contains all kinds of dockets released in that county.
- For an extensive criminal record check, refer to the state’s Law Enforcement Division. You can send them a request for a background check via mail (SLED Records Department. P.O.box 21398 Columbia SC 29221) or use their computerized database. For further details, go here. Their service cost $25 per name searched. You will have to provide them the subject’s name, date of birth, and social security number.
- To run a sex offender search that will help you locate people convicted of sex offenses, use the state’s registry.
One last point
Do not confuse Anderson County arrest records with court records. The former show the instances in which a person has been incarcerated. They do not indicate guilt. The latter reveal prosecutions and convictions and thus function as an indicator to whether a person has a criminal record.
