If you are worried about an active warrant issued against you in the past, it is highly recommended that you stay away from state agencies and try to get an arrest warrant search done in Barnwell County, SC, as soon as possible. This will help you to find out if a warrant was indeed signed in your name.

However, it would be a grave folly to walk into the police station or even the county clerk’s office to conduct such an inquiry. Arrest records and information on outstanding warrants are also available online. However, the data comes from private sources, so you need not be concerned about being detained.

On the other hand, the safest way to find out about Barnwell County active warrants and arrests from the judiciary or law enforcement is to send your attorney to conduct the inquiry on your behalf. A lawyer will be able to get in-depth information on the matter, including the charges being filed against you.

Remember that arrest warrants are not always issued when people commit a criminal transgression. Although rare, sometimes these orders for arrests also get issued due to mistaken identities. So, it would be best to get yourself legal representation when handling these directives.
