How to Search for Hall County Warrants
Hall County warrants give the police the right to incarcerate a person under suspicion of involvement in an illegal act. To be issued, these warrants must be approved and signed by a judge who usually examines the evidence and decides if there is a probable cause for an arrest.
Where can you perform a warrant lookup?
We strongly advise to start your Hall County warrant search at the sheriff office (2859 Browns Bridge Road, Gainesville, Georgia 30504. Ph: 770-531-6900). Their Record Division will provide you with a criminal history report either on yourself or on other people. You will need to visit them in person, bring a Georgia photo I.D and pay a fee of $20.
Running an arrest search
Information on recent Hall County arrest records can be obtained by referring to the inmate population list published on the sheriff's website. Each detainee's name on the list appears with an offender number, booking date, arrest agency, charges and bond.
For a more thorough inquiry (including older jail records) you can call the local jail staff at 770-531-9064.
How can the court help your search?
Another place to look for Hall County warrants is the court as this is where all arrest orders are issued. You'd better turn to the Criminal Division of the Clerk of Superior and State Courts (225 Green St. SE Gainesville, GA 3050. Ph: 770-531-7025) to garner information.
In addition, the Clerk's website has an online court records search (see link on the home page) where you can trace specific cases according to their number, party name or attorney name.
Performing a wider Georgia background check
Hall County warrants will only give you a partial picture as they are local in nature. If you wish to broaden your inquiry to encompass all of the state's counties, go to the electronic felon search managed by the GA Bureau of Investigation.
For a 15 dollar fee, you can view criminal histories of people residing in the state, including conviction records.
The rationale behind a criminal background check
Checking the background of people you interact with on an everyday basis is essential to keeping you and your family safe. You surely do not want to discover all of a sudden that your children's babysitter is wanted by the police for a crime she has committed in the past. A Hall County warrant search will significantly minimize this risk.
