Sacramento County Arrest Records and Warrant Search
This article aims at showing you step by step how to search for Sacramento County arrest records and how to carry out a warrant search in order to find out if a person of interest to you has a criminal history that may jeopardize you, your family or your business. It's not difficult to carry out such a search and it's definitely worth your time and effort.
How to Find Jail Records
The most recommended source to run a Sacramento County arrest records search is the sheriff department's online inmate locator which you can find at https://www.sacsheriff.com/InmateInformation/. You will have to insert either an inmate's name or an X-REF number. This database changes all the time according to changes in defendants' status.
If you intend your inquiry to encompass other counties in the state, we recommend performing a broader California inmate search using the CDCR's inmate lookup tool. A person's full name is sufficient to perform an inquiry, but you can also use CDCR number. The results you will get include the inmate's name, age, booking date, location within the state's prison system and parole eligibility details. This database contains current detainees only. If you want to inquire about past inmates, you should contact the CDCR Identification Unit. Their phone number is 916-445-6713.
How to Perform a Sacramento County Warrant Search
To trace Sacramento County warrants, you had better refer to the Sheriff Office. They maintain data banks containing the names of wanted persons for all types of offenses. Unfortunately, these data banks cannot be found on the internet, so you will have to physically arrive at their office (4500 Orange Grove Avenue, Sacramento, CA 95841) and turn to their Records & Warrants Unit (their phone number is 916-874-5383). They're usually quite cooperative when it comes to sharing information on wanted people for reasons of public safety.
It's important to note that the Sheriff Office does offer an online sex offender search for locating former sex offenders and predators in your neighborhood so as to make sure your loved ones stay away from these potentially dangerous people.
Finding Sacramento County Court Records
Dockets issued by the court can provide very useful information on Sacramento County arrest records as they detail a person's convictions and jail/prison sentences.
The county's Superior Court will assist you in locating criminal records. You can opt for the Court remote access search tool (https://www.saccourt.ca.gov/criminal/records.aspx) and carry out an online inquiry, but if you are a member of the public and not a party, you will have limited access.
Your second option is to go to the courthouse and use their terminals to garner information on criminal cases. You will be able to view more records compared to the remote access.
The third option is to fill out a special request form to view criminal records. The form includes your credit card number for service fee (which stands at $0.50 per page to a maximum of $35.00 or $50.00 for a certified copy). You can submit the form at the courthouse or send it to Sacramento Superior Court 720 9th Street, Room 101 Sacramento, CA 95814.
For more information on this process and payment methods and for links for downloading the request form, go to https://www.saccourt.ca.gov/criminal/records.aspx.
