Charlotte County Arrest Records and Warrant Search

From time to time, the need for checking a person’s background arises. This person can be one of your colleagues, a potential business partner, a woman you consider hiring as a nanny for your children and even a new neighbor who has just arrived at the neighborhood. For this reason, it is important that you know how to do a Charlotte county warrant search and how to find arrest records.

Acquiring information on outstanding warrants

For your information, Charlotte County outstanding warrants are, in fact, arrest warrants that have not been served; that is, the suspect has not been located and taken into custody. To find these warrants, it is recommended visiting the sheriff office and making the necessary inquiry. Their address is:

Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office:
7474 Utilities Road
Punta Gorda, Florida 33982

A caution is required. If during the search it is found out that there is an arrest warrant meant for you, you will probably end the visit behind bars.

So if you are interested in minimizing risk, you can use online search tools. Here are three recommended resources:

  • Florida Crime information Center has a public access system that allows an electronic search for the state’s wanted persons.
  • The search form on this page (see above) enables you to check a person’s arrest history and discover whether there are arrest warrants against him / her in Charlotte County and anywhere else in Florida. In other words, you will be able to view a person’s full criminal history. 100% confidentiality is guaranteed.
  • You can go to Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Sexual Predator Database to learn whether a person has a history of sex offenses.
