How to Do a Sedgwick County Warrant Search

How to Do a Quick, Inexpensive, and Accurate Sedgwick County Warrant Search

It can be scary to have a warrant out for your arrest. But it's even worse if there is a warrant out and you don't know about it. So if you suspect that there's an arrest warrant out for you, you may want to do a Sedgwick County warrant search.

Of course, you may want to do a warrant search for someone else too, not just yourself. Maybe one of your loved ones has a warrant out for their arrest. Or maybe you just want to check whether a certain person whom you have come across is in trouble with the law. In all these cases, it might be a good idea to do a .

Is There a Warrant Out for Your Arrest?

How can it be possible that there's a warrant out for your arrest and you don't even know about it? Don't the police come looking for you when an arrest warrant is issued? The fact is that there are two types of arrest warrants—regular arrest warrants and bench warrants.

Arrest WarrantsArrest warrants are issued when a person has committed a crime. If an arrest warrant of this sort is issued for you, then the police will come looking for you.
Bench WarrantsBench warrants are issued when you don't follow the rules of the court. For example, maybe you're supposed to show up in court due to a small traffic violation, but you don't show up. In that case, the judge will issue a bench warrant for you.

In such cases, the police won't come searching for you, but you might find out about it later when you're applying for a job or trying to rent an apartment. And it can come as quite a shock! Fortunately, the situation can be resolved by hiring an attorney and paying the fines that you owe.

Is There a Warrant for the Arrest of Someone You Know?

There are many reasons why people might want to check on the warrants of someone they know.

  • Maybe you're thinking of hiring that person and want to make sure they're not felons on the run from the law.
  • Maybe you're thinking about renting an apartment out to that person (or even living with them as roommates) and want to make sure they are not in any legal trouble.
  • Maybe you met someone online but don't know that much about them and are afraid they may be criminals.
  • Maybe you think that someone who lives in your neighborhood or works in your office is a criminal, and you want to check to see if there's a warrant out for them.

In all these cases, you may feel anxious about being around a certain person, and doing a warrant search might set your mind at ease. On the other hand, if you find that there is, in fact, a warrant out for that person's arrest, then you can take the appropriate action, such as renting out your apartment to somebody else.

How Do You Search for a Warrant?

Whether you're doing it for yourself or for someone else, you can look up an active warrant in several ways.

  1. In-Person: You can search the public records by going to a courthouse or a police station. However, this method takes a lot of time, and you may not want to wait that long. Additionally, if the warrant is in your name and you go to a police station, then they might have to question/detain you.
  2. Online: You can look up the records online. The Sheriff's office in Sedgwick County has a webpage to look up active warrants by entering the person's first and last name. Of course, this may get problematic if the name is a common one. You may end up accessing someone else's records. Also, there's no saying whether this online system is completely up to date. Some warrants may not have been uploaded to the database. Also, certain types of cases are not public records.
  3. Through a Lawyer: You can hire an attorney to look up arrest warrants. This option will give you accurate results because an attorney will definitely be able to look up all the arrest warrants that have been issued. However, this is also an expensive method because you'll have to pay attorney fees.
