Guidelines to Help You Find  Kenton County Warrants

In this article you will learn how to search for Kenton County warrants. You will be shown which governmental agencies you should turn to in order to inquire about a person's criminal and arrest history. We will also explain how to perform a background check  that covers the entire state of Kentucky.

Carrying out a warrant lookup

The best starting point for a Kenton County warrant search is the sheriff. His website does not have an electronic search tool, so you will have to drop by his office (5272 Madison Pike, Independence, Kentucky 41051. Phone: 859-392-1882) and inquire about a specific person.

The sheriff is usually quite willing to share any information he has about wanted people hoping that cooperation with the public will expedite his criminal investigations

Information on Kenton County warrants should also be sought by reaching the Criminal Investigation Division of Covington Police Department (13183 Harland Drive NE, Covington, GA 30014, Phone: Main Number: 770-786-7605). Since they are in charge of investigating crimes in their area, they have the most updated data on wanted people and fugitives.

Turning to the Court

The court's archives stores all local outstanding warrants issued throughout the years. To access this archive you should turn to the Clerk of Circuit Court (230 Madison Avenue, 3rd Floor, Covington, Kentucky 41011. Phone: 859-292-6523) and  request to view Kenton County court records (which you are entitled to in accordance with the Kentucky Open Records Act).

In addition, the State Court has an online database that shows court dockets by county. You can find it at

How to inquire about a person's arrest history

Kenton county warrants will not tell you whether a person has been arrested in the past. To find out if someone you know has ever spent time behind bars, we suggest contacting  the local jail at 3000 Decker Crane Lane, Covington, Kentucky 41017 (phone: 859-363-2400).

The jail's website has an electronic list of recent Kenton county arrest records. Each record displays an inmate's personal details, booking time, court date/sentence, bond information, description of charges, the offender's mugshot and more.

To broaden your search to include Kentucky arrest records, refer to the webpage of the KY Department Of Correction. They operate an online inmate search tool (KOOL) that shows people incarcerated in prisons all over the state. You can access it at

Conducting a broader criminal history search

To perform a wider background check that includes KY warrants, there are two recommended databases that encompass the entire state:

1) To obtain statewide criminal record reports, turn to the Administrative Office of the Court ( These reports include  misdemeanor offences from the past 5  years and felonies offenses committed since 1978.

A report can be obtained online, by US mail or by visiting their offices in person (1001 Vandalay Drive, Frankfort, KY 40601). The fee stands at $25.00 per report.

2) The search tool offered by this site provides full criminal reports on people living in Kentucky. These reports contain information on Kenton County warrants, arrest records, criminal records, court dockets and more.  The data in these reports also covers other counties.  Accuracy and searchers' anonymity are guaranteed.  Service fees are highly affordable.
