How to Carry out a Jefferson County Warrant Search

A Jefferson County warrant search will tell you if a person is wanted by the police. This search is necessary to find out if that person (who can be a potential employee or your kids' babysitter) has a criminal history.

Jefferson County warrants are issued by the court upon police request. A judge is required to sign a warrant to make it legally binding and he will do so only if he is convinced that there is a probable cause indicating that the suspect has committed a crime that justifies an arrest.

From the moment they are issued, arrest warrants remain valid indefinitely until served; that is, the suspect has been taken into custody.

Carrying out your search

The first place to begin a Jefferson County warrant search is the sheriff since his department is responsible for locating and apprehending fugitives.  Since his  website does not contain an online database showing the county's arrest orders, you will be required to physically visit his office (the Warrant Division) and inquire about a person of interest to you. Their address is 600 W Jefferson St. Room 1002, Louisville, Kentucky 40202. Phone: 502-574-0961.

The sheriff office is usually quite cooperatives when it comes to disseminating information about wanted people out of public safety considerations.

Using the court databases

Another place where you can carry out a Jefferson County warrant search is the court. We suggest contacting the Clerk of Circuit Court, the Criminal Division (Their phone number is 502-595-3009), and ask for information about the person whose background you wish to check.

You will probably be asked to file a FOIA  request to view Jefferson County court dockets. For your information, Kentucky Open Records Act obligates the authorities to reveal the records they possess to the public upon request. However, do not expect to find information on criminal cases that are under active investigation or on cases that involve minors as they are kept concealed.

Carrying out an arrest search

To inquire about a person's arrest history you should turn to the Louisville Department of Correction. On their website, you will find an inmate search tool that provides electronic copies of Jefferson County arrest records. Some of these records go back to 2018.

The records presented include an offender's name, inmate number, booking number, booking time, release date and personal and physical details. You will also be able to see a description of his/her charges and a mugshot.

Using the state's databases

A Jefferson County warrant search will give you local result. If you want to perform a wider background check that will encompass all of KY counties,  you should turn to the Administrative Office of the Courts. For a fee of $25.00, they will give you a criminal record report covering misdemeanor cases from the last 5 years and felony cases from 1978 onwards. The reports can be obtained online, by U.S mail or simply by visiting their Record Unit in person at  1001 Vandalay Drive, Frankfort, KY 40601​​​​​​​​. For more information go to
