Before you walk into the local police station with your hands held out to be arrested, fearing an active warrant in your name, it would help to get an arrest warrant search done in Fairfield County, SC. This way, you will know if the police did ever seek an order for your arrest. However, it would be unwise to venture out on a quest to find this information on your own.

While several state agencies offer information about arrest records and active warrants, they are certainly not too keen on divulging this data to people with a criminal past. In fact, you are sure to get arrested if you try such a thing. Instead, it would make more sense to look for details on arrests and outstanding warrants from Fairfield County online.

To do this, you can use the form on top of this page. Filling it with the required information will get you access to a nationwide database of criminal history. If you seek details on third parties, you can easily approach a state department. Three of the agencies that you can visit are listed below:

  • The Police: 400 W Washington St, Winnsboro, South Carolina 29180
  • The court: 115 S Congress St, Winnsboro, SC 29180
  • The clerk of court: PO Drawer 299, Winnsboro, South Carolina 29180

Of these state offices, the county clerk can provide details on civil and criminal cases because they are the holders of the court dockets database. The sheriff’s office will be able to offer the most extensive information when it comes to criminal matters; this includes a list of the county’s most wanted. Finally, the magistrate’s court can furnish details on the release of other judicial directives apart from arrest warrants.
