Glades County Arrest Records and Warrant Search

A background check in Glades County, FL, should start with court records since they reveal a person’s history of convictions. So if you do not want to hire an ex-felon to be your kids’ nanny or your employee, visit the clerk of courts website where you will be referred to a couple of public records databases, one of which includes a search tool for court dockets.

To find Glades County arrest records that ended up in neither a trial nor a conviction, go to the sheriff’s official Internet site which offers an efficient inmate locator tool. It reveals the arrestee’s personal details (including a photo, physical description and a last known address), booking date, custody status and release date. In addition, the website explains the booking process in the county jail and how to send mail to inmates. It also elaborates on visitation rules.

The last important element in inquiring about a person’s background includes a warrant check. Glades County arrest warrants are issued when the police believe a person committed a crime that requires an arrest. Of course, they must convince a judge that there is a probable cause for such an arrest before he agrees to sign the warrant and thus make it an official arrest order.

To initiate a Glades County warrant search, you will have to come into the sheriff office (1297 East State Road 78. Moore Haven, Florida 33471) and go over their databases. You may also call them at (863) 946-1600.
