For people who are desirous of getting a Monroe County arrest warrant search done, there are two convenient options. It is possible to initiate an inquiry into all active warrants issued in AR in the name of the subject or find information about this person through the most wanted lists posted on the police website.
However, this option will not work in all cases, meaning that only repeat and serious criminal offenders are made a part of this list. So, if a misdemeanor of Class C or D category is what the subject was involved in, you will have to take the regular route. To use the online facility for accessing the most wanted list, go to http://www.monroecountysheriffar.com/.
Alternatively, you can find details on Monroe County arrest records and outstanding warrants from the following agencies:
- The sheriff’s department: 200 South Main Street, Clarendon, Arkansas 72029
- The magistrate’s court: 123 Madison St, Clarendon, AR 72029
- The county clerk’s office: As above
Crime history inquiries are only initiated when the applicant visits a state agency in person to file the request for the search. A small fee also has to be paid to get the investigation underway. Usually, the response will be handed over to you within a matter of minutes; however, if you mail in the request form, it can take a few days to receive an answer from the state department of your choosing.
Of the three agencies mentioned above, the county clerk’s office, responsible for handling the court dockets, can offer the most in-depth information about a subject. Since this department keeps details on cases that the civil and criminal courts handled, you can find out about every legal matter, including arrests in the subject’s name.
