Holmes County Arrest Records and Warrant Search
A Holmes County arrest warrant issued against you will lead to your arrest as soon as you are located by the police. You can be apprehended while you are at home or at work, while you are on a date or even during a random license check. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you run a warrant query on yourself to find out whether you are wanted by the police. This query is very simple. In most cases you will not even have to leave your house.
Running a criminal background check
Like all other FL counties, a Holmes County warrant search should mainly focus on the sheriff office. They can give you the best information on the county’s wanted persons. You can find the office at 211 N. Oklahoma Street, Bonifay Florida, 32425. Just take into account that if you are one of those wanted persons, going to the sheriff office will end with your arrest.
It is definitely safer to rely on online sources. One of these sources is the wanted person search that is activated by Florida Crime Information Center. This is a computerized data bank everyone can access to find FL outstanding warrants.

Online sources for an arrest search
Unfortunately, the sheriff’s website does not offer any inmate locator tool. So in order to find Holmes County arrest records, we suggest referring to the search tool offered by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. This is an online criminal history archive that displays a person’s criminal past including his / her arrests. The main problem with it is that each search costs 24 dollars – not a cheap option if you have to run more than one search.
Florida Department of Corrections provides the public with two free search tools. The first concentrates on current inmate population in the state’s correctional facilities; the second shows past inmates that have committed various offenses.
If you wish to find out whether a person has ever been convicted of a crime, visit the clerk of courts website. It offers an electronic search system for court records. On the website you can also retrieve other Holmes County public records.
