The Chicot County website, https://chicotcounty.arkansas.gov/, describes the county sheriff as “…the top lawman in the county…” who performs numerous jobs, such as traffic enforcement, running the county jail, and investigating crimes. Then, it makes sense that the best resource for an arrest warrant search in Chicot County is the sheriff’s office.
Within the sheriff’s office is the criminal investigations division, which prepares search warrants as one of its many duties. The direct contact information for the Chicot County Sheriff’s Office criminal investigations office is 870-265-8020. The criminal investigation section also looks into the 215 or so crimes in the county each year. Some crimes are minor, but each year, the county sees, on average, about 5 murders and almost twenty rapes.
Since one of the other responsibilities of the criminal investigations office is compiling case files, that area may also be a great resource for those seeking information on arrests and arrest records. The other means of finding arrest record data within Chicot County is the Circuit Clerk’s Office. That office handles criminal, civil, and domestic cases. The Chicot County, AR Courthouse is located at 108 Main Street, Lake Village, AR, 71653, and their telephone number is 870-265-8040.
There are many reasons why people want to investigate outstanding arrest warrants. One very common motivation for some people is the belief that there is an active warrant with their name on it. The Chicot County sheriff maintains all of the warrants issued by the county courts (district and circuit), and the warrants are considered to be public information.
So, just about anyone may contact the sheriff’s office by telephone to get information on active arrest warrants and bonds in Chicot County. Those who want to take care of their own outstanding warrant should contact the sheriff, as they may be able to work out a less disruptive plan than if they were picked up on the street, pursuant to an outstanding warrant.
