Learn How to Perform a Shelby County Warrant Search

A Shelby County warrant search will help you find out if a person is suspected of committing a crime and, therefore, wanted by the police. This article will show you where you should go and who you should turn to in order to conduct such a search. You will also be shown how to obtain copies of arrest records for the purpose of a criminal background check.

How can you know that a person is wanted by the police?

The best place to inquire about a person criminal history is the sheriff. His website doesn't present a list of wanted fugitives, so you will need to arrive at his office (501 Main Street, Shelbyville, Kentucky 40065) and ask about a specific individual. To save time, you may try to garner this information on the phone by dialing them at 502-633-4324.

You can also carry out a Shelby County warrant search by turning to your local police department. The biggest department with the most extensive databases is Shelbyville Police. They have a special phone number you can use to find out if there is an outstanding warrant on your or another person's name: 502-633-2326.

The court is where arrest orders are signed and issued, so it will make sense to turn to them. We recommend going to the Circuit Court Clerk (401 Main Street, Suite 101, Shelbyville, KY 40065, Phone: 502-633-1287) as they are responsible for managing official legal documents. Once you are there, make a request to view Shelby County court records. Kentucky Open Records Act gives you the right to view copies of governmental records. You will need to file a FOIA request and pay a fixed fee.

Performing an arrest search

Shelby County arrest records can shed light on a person's incarceration history. You can ask for access to these records by dialing to the local detention center at 502-633-2343.

Alternatively, you can make use of the online name-based offender lookup tool maintained by the state's Department of Corrections. It is built for a wider search for KY arrest records, but the advanced options enable you to focus on a specific county jail anywhere in the state.

Expanding your background check to include other counties

Shelby County warrant search only presents local results. if you want your inquiry to encompass the entire state, we strongly advise utilizing the services of the Administrative Office of the Court. They hand out reports on people's criminal history. Each report contains misdemeanor offenses committed since 2015 and felony offenses committed since 1978. You can access a report online, get it on U.S. mail or simply by visiting their offices at 1001 Vandalay Drive, Frankfort, Kentucky 40601. The fee per one report is 25 dollars. To get more details about this service, call them at 502-573-2350.  

Another viable option is using this website's highly effective background check tool. By typing an individual's name, you will get a full account of his criminal history in all of KY counties and other U.S. states. You will immediately know if that individual has one or more Shelby County warrants carrying his/her name. You will also see statewide police records, prison records, conviction records, court dockets and anything else indicating a problematic history with the law.

The information is taken from enormous public and private databases to promise maximum accuracy. All searches are fully anonymous. The fee for this service is highly affordable.
