Broward County Warrant Search - Find Criminal Data on Anyone
Performing a Broward County warrant search is important if you want to know whether a person (that person can be you) is wanted for a crime he has allegedly committed. The search process is quite easy if you know which sources to use.
Performing your warrant inquiry
The best place for a Broward County warrant search is the Record Division at the sheriff office. They will carry out a background check for you. You will have to visit them in person during work hours (Monday-Thursday, 8:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.). We suggest calling them in advance at 954-831-8700 to see if they have the report you are seeking.
Information can be requested via email as well. For more details, turn to Division's webpage
You may also decide to adopt a broader approach and expand your inquiry to the whole state. The FDLE maintains an electronic database
that enables you to carry out a Florida warrant search. It shows wanted people from all of the state's counties based on information delivered from local law enforcement authorities.
A local arrest inquiry
On the sheriff website, you will find an inquiry tool for tracking current inmates
. Result include Broward County arrest records with details such the detainee's DOB, name, gender, physique, booking number, arrest date and release and the facility where he is held. The records also contain a mugshot and charge information.
A statewide search
FL arrest records can be searched on the FDLE's Computerized Criminal History database
. Be advised, each name you will check will come with a fee of $ 24.
There are two more governmental databases on the Internet that we recommend:
1) Use the FDC's Inmate Population Information Search
to track current inmates in the state's prisons.
2) The FDC's offender search
displays prison records of former inmates.
Finding Broward County court records
To check if a person has a history of convictions you will need to access court records. The Clerk of Court operates an online case search tool
which enables you to look for civil and criminal records by name or date.
You can also download a document request form
, fill it in and send it to the Clerk via email or fax. For further explanation, go here
Another alternative for a Broward County warrant search
operates a criminal history search tool. By typing a person name and choosing Florida as your search zone, you will get detailed background reports containing Broward County warrants and arrest and conviction records. Data also encompass a person's criminal history in other FL counties.
The information presented in the reports is accurate and updated. Searchers' confidentiality is guaranteed.
