Have you ever wondered if your neighbor, friend, or a family member has an outstanding warrant for their arrest? In Elbert County, you can perform a warrant search to determine if an arrest warrant is pending against yourself or another person. Arrest warrants are severe and require immediate attention. If an attorney is contacted before the arrest warrant is served, he may facilitate the surrender of the suspect and arrange for a bond or bail. To determine if an arrest warrant has been issued in Elbert County, you can search the court records for open criminal cases. You can also contact the Sheriff’s Office to check for outstanding warrants.
Begin your warrant search with the Court Clerk’s Office for Elbert County. The office is located at 751 Ute Street in Kiowa, CO 80117 (telephone: 303-621-2131). You must submit a Research Request Form and pay a fee for staff to search court records on your behalf. However, you should contact the office directly to inquire about provisions for the public to search court cases without a fee. If you find an active warrant, you should contact an attorney immediately as the Clerk’s staff is forbidden to offer legal advice about active warrants or criminal court cases.
To search for outstanding warrants, obtain copies of arrest records, or request criminal background histories, you must contact the Records Division of the Elbert County Sheriff’s Office. The instructions for requesting research and copies are located on the Sheriff’s website. A current jail roster is mentioned but not linked on the recently updated County Jail page.
