Citrus County Arrest Records and Warrant Search

During 2013, police made 4,707 arrests in Citrus County, FL. In 2012, there was an equal number of arrests in the county. With this relatively high number of people taken into custody every year, it is clear why you might find it necessary to check whether your name or the name of a person close to you appears on a Citrus County arrest warrant.

So where can you acquire warrant information?

We strongly advise contacting the county sheriff, the Public Information Office in particular. This office stores written public records, such as arrest affidavits and offense reports. They can definitely provide plenty of assistance regarding a Citrus County warrant search. They are open Monday – Friday from 8 am to 5 pm. To reach them, go to the sheriff office at 1 Dr Martin Luther King Jr Avenue. Inverness, FL  34450-4968. You also have an option to ask for information via the mail (hyates@sheriffcitrus.org) or by phone at 352-726-4488.

And what about arrest information?

The sheriff’s website has an arrest reports page that will present Citrus County arrest records. You will be asked to type the arrestee’s name and the relevant date of arrest. Results include the arrestee’s full name, race, sex, address, arrest date and time, arrest number, charge description and (in some of the results) a photo.

Records relevant to the years preceding 2007 will not be displayed, so for an extensive arrest search that may reveal older records, you should consider referring to the criminal history online database managed by Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Their database is not free as you will be required to pay 24 dollars per search.

Instead of resorting to multiple resources, the search box on this website will make it possible for you to learn about a person’s criminal background (arrest records and outstanding warrants issued against him / her) in one search. It will save you time and effort. Your search will be totally confidential.
