Fresno County Arrest Records and Warrant Search

Have your daughter started dating a person you suspect has a criminal record? Would you not be interested in checking his background to make sure she is safe? This is one example (and we can think of many others) why people want to undertake an arrest records search. This article will give you specific guidelines on how to check a person’s criminal history in Fresno County, California.

Finding jail records

To conduct a Fresno County arrest records search, we recommend making use of the computerized inmate locator on the sheriff’s website, which can be found here. You will be exposed to quite a lot of information that includes the detainee’s full name, ID, booking number, DOB, sex, race and physique. You will also see when he or she was incarcerated and released, which agency made the arrest and, of course, what the charge was.

If you are interested in learning about recent arrests that were made in the county, the jail section on the sheriff’s website also provides booking and release reports related to the last 72 hours.

Alternatively, you may contact Fresno County Jail directly at 888-373-7011 (They are located at 1225 M St, Fresno, CA 93721) or opt for a broader California inmate search with the help of the electronic data bank maintained by the CDCR.

Undertaking a Fresno County warrant search

To find out if a person is wanted by the police, you will have to check whether there is an outstanding warrant carrying his or her name. To do that, refer to the Sheriff’s Records Unit. They process more than 42,000 warrants annually. They do not have an online search tool, which means you will be required to arrive at their office in person at 2200 Fresno St. Fresno, CA 93721 (Phone: 559-600-8401).

Take into account that most of the data the Records Unit stores is meant for law enforcement agencies, so they may not agree to give you all the information you are seeking. If that is the case, we suggest using the electronic search tool attached to this article. It will enable you to carry an extensive criminal background check on anyone living in the county and the state. Results are accurate and updated. Searchers’ confidentiality is strictly maintained.

Fresno County court records

Criminal court dockets will tell you if the person you are checking has ever been convicted of a misdemeanor offence or a felony. Unfortunately, the website of the county’s Superior Court contains an online inquiry tool that covers family and civil cases only. For a criminal case search, visit the criminal unit at 1100 Van Ness Ave. (4th floor) Fresno, CA 93724-0002 (phone no. 559-457-1801 /2)
