Helpful Guidelines for a McCracken County Warrant Search

There are situations in life that necessitate a background check. For example, you are looking for a babysitter for your children or a nurse for your elderly patents. You have just started dating a new person. You are about to hire an employee for your company. In the following article we explain how to carry out a  McCracken County warrant search and how to check a person's arrest history for the sole purpose of keeping the people you care about and your business safe.

Conducting a warrant lookup

Your primary source for a McCracken County warrant search is the Sheriff Office since they are in charge of tracing and apprehending fugitives. Their website does not present a wanted people list, so you will have to pay them a visit (300 Clarence Gaines Street, Paducah, Kentucky 42003, phone: 270-444-4719) and ask about a specific individual that matters to you.

You can also turn to Paducah Police Department (1400 Broadway, Paducah, KY 42001, phone: 270-444-8550) and ask for access to their criminal records. Their Support Services Division is responsible for keeping these records.

As a rule of thumb, law enforcement agencies have no problem sharing information about McCracken County warrants for reasons of public safety. They also hope that cooperation with the citizens may help them expedite their criminal investigations. They may withhold information only when minors are involved or the when the relevant case is under active investigation.

Turning to the court

Another place where you can perform a McCracken County warrant search is the court as this is where arrest orders are issued. The Circuit Court Clerk is where these orders are processed and stored. We recommend that you go to their office (301 S. Sixty St. Paducah, KY 42002-1455, phone: 270-575-7280) and ask for information about the county's arrest warrants. You will probably need to file a formal FOIA request to view criminal records. Kentucky Open Records Act obligates the government to release their records upon public request.

How to do an arrest search

To inquire about McCracken County arrests, go to the local jail's webpage. You will find there a list showing current inmates. By tapping on a name on the list, you will be shown an electronic record containing the offender's personal details, incarceration date and scheduled release (if there is any), arresting agency and offense and bond details. Some records also contain a mugshot.

To expand your search to other counties, refer to the Kentucky Online Department Lookup (Kool) operated by the KY Department of Corrections. This tool gives information about inmates in all of the state's prisons.

A statewide background check

A McCracken County warrant search will only give you local results. For a wider criminal history search we suggest referring to the Administrative Office of the Court. They provide criminal history reports that encompass the entire state. The reports include misdemeanor offenses  from 2015 onwards and felony offenses which have been committed since 1978.

Each report costs $25.00 and can be obtained in person by visiting their offices (1001 Vandalay Drive, Frankfort, KY 40601, phone: 502-573-2350). It can also be sent to you on the Internet or by U.S. mail.

To save you time, effort and money, you can use the search tool offered by this website. By typing a person's name, you will get an accurate and updated report detailing his or her criminal history. The report contains data on Kentucky warrants, arrest records, police records and court dockets - everything you need to know whether the person you are checking has ever had problems with the law. Searchers' anonymity is guaranteed. Service fees are highly affordable.
