So, you are interested in a Pontotoc County, Oklahoma warrant search? Have you tried the sheriff's office? If not, there are at least two other government agencies which can also help you to find out about an active warrant against a person of your knowing. In fact, you will find that some judicial departments can offer more extensive information on the background of your subject than the police.
For instance, if you seek information on outstanding warrants from the office of the magistrate, you are also likely to find detail on any other legal instruments that were issued against the subject of your inquiry including bench warrants, summons and search orders. Similarly, you can also find case specifics from this agency.
Because the court of the magistrate is the judicial entity that has been entrusted the authority of issuing arrest warrants, you will find accurate details on all active warrants against a person and arrest orders which already resulted in his/her detention along with reports on case convictions, incarceration and more.
You can also get data on active warrants issued in Pontotoc County from the office of the county clerk. This judicial department does not have an active role in the release of such detention decrees nor does it assist in serving these orders. However, the clerk of court and his team are responsible for keeping the court dockets which are written accounts of what went on through the life of a case.
So, browsing through the database of court dockets will get you details on all civil and criminal cases that a person is associated with or is involved in. To get these details, head to:
- The office of the sheriff: 100 W 13th St Ste 100, Ada, Oklahoma 74820
- The office of the magistrate: 120 W 13th St, Ada, OK 74820
- The office of the clerk of court: 100 West 13th, Ada, Oklahoma 74820
