Kern County Arrest Records and Warrant SearchDoes your daughter's new boyfriend have a dubious character? Do you have reasons to believe he has a criminal history? You might want to conduct a background check to make certain your loved one is not dating a person that might endanger her. This article will demonstrate how to carry out a Kern county warrant and arrest records search.
Finding out if a person is wanted by the policeArrest warrants do not indicate guilt, yet they can certainly tell you that a person is suspected of committing a crime and that he is wanted by the police for questioning. The best place to trace Kern County warrants is through the sheriff office. They will not disclose information on the phone. If you want to check on yourself, you should arrive in person at the jail office located at the downtown Central Receiving Facility, 1415 Truxtun Ave. You must be equipped with a photo ID. However, you should think twice before you do that; if it is indeed found that you are a wanted person, you might be taken into custody. You can also contact the court to obtain warrant information. For felony offenses, call 661868-5393; for misdemeanor offenses, call 661-868-7207 and for traffic violations call 661-868-2382.
Conducting an arrest searchAccording to California Public Records Act, Kern County arrest records are open to public view as long as the relevant case is still handled in court. After that, only law enforcement agencies have access to the data. Therefore you have two options to obtain information:
- You can view your own arrest history at the Sheriff's Arrest Records Unit. It requires a $25 fee. If you need a copy of this history, you will need to fill in a request for a live scan service and electronically deliver your finger prints to the California Department of Justice. This service also costs $25.
- If you want to view others' arrest history without getting through all this red tape, use the electronic inquiry tool on this page. It will show you a person's complete civil and criminal background. Accuracy and confidentiality are guaranteed.
