The Most Effective Way to Carry out a Pike County Warrant Search

If you wish to perform a criminal background check, you will need to obtain information on warrants and arrest records. The former will indicate whether the person you are checking is wanted by the police; the latter will tell you if that person has ever spent time behind bars. This articles explains how to carry out a Pike County warrant search and how to do an inmate lookup.

Inquiring about outstanding warrants

One of the duties of the sheriff is to serve warrants, so this where you should go to find out if a person is suspected of committing a crime and is, therefore, wanted by the county's law enforcement agencies. Their office is located at 146 Main Street, Suite 204, Pikeville, Kentucky  41501, phone: 606-432-6260.

You can also inquire about Pike County warrants by visiting Pikeville Police (243 Main St. Pikeville, KY 41501, phone: 606-437-5100) and asking to go over their list of wanted people in the area under their jurisdiction.

Driven by considerations of public safety, neither they nor the sheriff will withhold information on  active warrants unless minors are involved or a case is under active investigation.

How can the court help you?

Another primary source for a Pike County warrant search is the court as this is where all arrest order are issued. You should turn to the Circuit Court Clerk (172 Division St. Pikeville, KY 41502-1002, phone: 606-433-7557) as they deal with felony cases. You will have  to submit a FOIA request to view copies of criminal records that may tell you if a person has a warrant under his name and whether he was convicted of a crime.

For your information, Kentucky Open Records Act obligates the authorities to reveal official documents to the public and that includes Pike County court dockets.

Conducting an arrest search

Pike County arrests can be seen on the website of the local jail (http://www.pikecountydetention.com/PikeCounty_InmateList.html). There you'll find a an online list that presents current inmates. To ask about former inmates contact the jail administration at 606-432-6232.

Alternatively, you can refer to the online inmate search tool operated by the state's Department of Corrections. You can use it to search for Kentucky arrest records by inserting an inmate's name. Each record you will see contains an inmate's personal details and mugshot, his current location (the prison or jail facility where he is currently serving time), incarceration date, future release date, parole eligibility date and conviction information (including offense details).

Pike County warrant search does not reveal any information on other counties. To run a statewide background check, refer to the Administrative Office of the Court where you can obtain criminal history reports related to people that matter to you. Each report contains misdemeanor offences committed since 2015 and felony offenses committed from 1978 onwards.
