Like a select few regions of AR, an arrest warrant search in Newton County, can also be pulled off by using the most wanted list of the police. However, before you rush to use this facility provided on the website of local law enforcement, you should know about the factors that separate a usual for active warrants from the use of the data pertaining to the most wanted criminals in the area.
The list of perpetrators who are accused of serious criminal wrongdoings is published at regular intervals. These are offenders who have Cleveland County outstanding warrants to their name but have not been captured as yet. The webpage on http://www.newtoncountysheriff.org/only offers details on the transgression with which the unexecuted arrest warrant is linked. In other words, you will be hard pressed to find information on past criminal involvements and arrest records.
However, if you go through any of the agencies listed below for a traditional inquiry on warrants and arrests and take the effort of calling on the concerned department in person or sending your inquiry request through mail, you stand to get exhaustive details. What is more, if you go through the office of the county clerk, you can also access the court dockets from the civil tribunals. The justice departments that entertain such inquiries are:
- The sheriff’s department: P.O. Box 312, Jasper, Arkansas 72641
- The magistrate’s court: 100 East Court St, Jasper, AR 72641
- The county clerk’s office: PO Box 410, Jasper, Arkansas 72641
Crime statistics were only available for 2008 for Newton County. Through this year, about 120 criminal incidents were reported and about 20% were violent. Given the limited data available there is no scope for yearly crime figure comparisons. However, when you pitch the annual crime average against that of other counties, Newton certainly appears to be one of the safer neighborhoods of Arkansas
