How to Search for Baldwin County Warrants
Baldwin County warrants are issued by the court based on police request. They indicate that there is a probable cause that the person whose name appears on the warrant has committed a crime serious enough to justify an arrest. The following article explains how you can check whether people that matter to you are wanted by the police or whether they have ever spent time in jail.
Performing a warrant lookup
The sheriff's website presents the most wanted fugitives including their mugshots, but you won't find there more than 3-4 people at any given time, which is not enough if you are looking for information on Baldwin County warrants.
What you can do is physically go to the sheriff office (119 Old Monticello Rd NW, Milledgeville, Georgia 31061, phone: 478-445-5102) and inquire about a specific person that interests you.
You can also pay a visit to the Record Division of Milledgeville Police Department (125 W. McIntosh St. Milledgeville, Ga 31061), where you can obtain criminal history repots on people living in their area of Jurisdiction. Each report will cost you $20.00 (They only accept credit cards and money orders). Their office hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. For further information, you can call them at 478-414-4076.
Using the court's databases
A good source for information on Baldwin County warrants is the court where these warrants are issued to begin with. You should go to the office of the Superior Court Clerk (121 N. Wilkinson St. Suite 209, Milledgeville, GA 31061, phone: 478-445-6324) as they are in charge of criminal cases.
You'll need to file a formal request to view copies of court records. Georgia FOIA Laws obligate the authorities to reveal most dockets in their position to the public. For more information about your right to view public records, consult the website of GA Attorney General.
Carrying out an arrest search
You won't find an official online jail roster that presents Baldwin County arrest records, so the best you can do is contact the Jail Administrator ( phone: 478-445-2641, mail: email@example.com) and ask about a specific inmate.
You can expand your inquiry and use the online offender search tool offered by the GA Department of Corrections. It will let you trace an inmate in all of the state's prisons based on name and additional parameters, such as race, gender or age. This tool also enables you to trace parolees in Georgia.
Running a more extensive background check
Baldwin County warrants will tell you nothing about a person's offenses in other counties. To perform a wider Georgia felon search, we suggest using the online database operated by the GBI. You can use it to inquire about the criminal history of any person all over the state. You'll need to provide that person's name, gender and birth of date. Each search will cost you $15.00.
You have another alternative. This website maintains a highly accurate background check tool. You just need to type the subject's name, and you will get a full report displaying his/her criminal history. Each report covers Georgia arrest warrants, police records, prison records, civil and criminal court dockets and plenty of other background materials. Searchers' anonymity is safeguarded. Service fees are low.
