People do not usually think about searching for arrest warrants. They may think the information is not available to the public. They may fear that the information they find would upset them. Or, they may not be interested in the active warrants in their county. All that can change when either the individual or their friend or loved one becomes the subject of an arrest warrant. There are ways to find out about active warrants in Perry County.
To do an arrest warrant search in Perry County, AR, the best source of information is the county sheriff.
