Leon County Arrest Records and Warrant Search

Many people wish to conduct a criminal background check on a person with whom they have romantic relationship, on their colleagues, or even on a potential nanny. The aim of this article is to guide you through the process of conducting such a check. To make this check complete you will have to find Leon County arrest warrants, arrest records and court records.

A few words about a warrants lookup

When it comes to a Leon County warrant search, the best place to start is the sheriff office. This is the main source of information on arrests warrants issued in the county. Pay them a visit at 2825 Municipal Way. Tallahassee, FL 32304 or call them at 850-606-3300 and ask to share their information.

In case you do not want to trouble yourself with going to the sheriff office, Florida Crime Information Center operates an online public access system with an electronic search option that shows FL outstanding warrants. Since this search is geographically broader, you may come up with less precise results compared to what you can find at the sheriff office.

What you need to know about an arrest search

The county sheriff operates an inmate search on its website. This search will present only those who have recently taken into custody. For a more thorough Leon County arrest records search, visit the criminal history information webpage managed by Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The price for every search carried out on their website is 24 dollars – quite expensive if you intend to run more than one search.

Leon County Public Records are easy to find

Thanks to Florida Freedom of Information Act, you have the opportunity to observe public records and court records. Court records are important because they detail a person’s history of convictions (unlike arrest records that do not indicate guilt and conviction in court). The County Commissioners provide an online service where you can search for court data.

Another valuable source

If you do not have the time to access more than one site and you looking for instant information to be found in one place, use the search option on top of this page. It will provide you with an extensive criminal background of the person you are checking. Your search will be 100% confidential.
