Guidelines for Carrying out a Douglas County Warrant Search
A Douglas County warrant search can tell whether a person is wanted by local law enforcement agencies. The article below shows how to perform such a search. You will also be shown how to broaden your background check to include the entire State of Georgia.
Starting your inquiry
The primary source for a Douglas County warrant search is the sheriff department. You can turn to their Record Division for a background check on another person. You will need to appear in person at their office (8470 Earl D. Lee Blvd. Douglasville, GA 30134. Phone: 770-920-4921), present an ID and give your name and Social Security Number. This service costs $20.
How can the court help you?
Another place to run your warrant inquiry is the local court. The office of the Clerk of Superior Court files all criminal records and court procedures, so this is the right place to inquire about Douglas County warrants.
Since they don't present information online, you will be required to arrive at their office (8700 Hospital Drive - Main Floor, Douglas County Courthouse, Douglasville, Georgia 30134, phone: 770-920-7252) to check on a specific person.
Georgia FOIA Laws obligates the authorities to disclose public records upon demand. Warrant information is crucial for public safety, and so the authorities tend to share it with those who seek it.
Expanding your inquiry to the entire state
A Douglas County warrant search will display local results. If you want to expand your inquiry to cover the whole state, use the GA Felon Search.
This governmental database is connected to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and it enables you to carry out an online statewide background check on any person of interest to you. Most importantly, you will be able to see Georgia warrants issued in other counties. This service comes with a $15 fee per search.
Carrying out an arrest search
To garner information on Douglas County arrest records, go to the sheriff's website. There you will find daily incarceration reports from the last 30 days. Each report includes the inmate's name, booking date and charges.
In addition, the GA Department of Corrections operates an online offender search (see link below) where you can access Georgia arrest records by typing an inmate's name.
