Imperial County Arrest Records and Warrant Search

Imperial County arrest records show a person’s incarceration history. The county’s active and outstanding warrants are in fact an arrest order issued by the court. They authorize any peace officer to take a suspect into custody for a crime he or she is believed to have committed. Court records display a person’s prosecutions and convictions and therefore can indicate whether he or she has a criminal record.

How to carry out an Imperial county arrest records search?

Your first step should be contacting the Corrections Division at the sheriff office. They can be reached at 442-265-2220.  They can provide you with information regarding the current inmate population in the county’s two jails: the Herbert Hughes Correctional Center and the Regional Adult Detention Facility.

For older jail records, we suggest referring to the sheriff’s Records Division. Their phone number is 760-339-6345. They are usually reluctant to disclose information on other people, so you will have to come up with a good reason for why you need the information.

Lastly, searchers can use the CDCR’s online database to perform a wider California inmate search and thus look for a person in all of the state’s correctional facilities.
