Finding Forrest County Arrest Records and Warrants
Forrest County arrest records reveal the instances in which a person was apprehended by the local police. Warrants are issued against a person who is believed to have committed a crime that justifies an arrest. Neither indicates guilt which can only be established in court.
How can you inquire about a person incarceration history?
It’s quite simple. The sheriff maintains a webpage
which displays Forrest County arrest records from 2016 plus an inquiry tool for locating a detainee by name.
To deepen your inquiry, go to the online offender search
managed by the state’s Department of Corrections. It can be used to trace MS arrest records based on an inmate name or an ID number.
Searching for Forrest County warrants
Information on the county’s fugitives and wanted people can be obtained from the Warrant Division at the sheriff office (Telephone: 601-544-7800. 55 Arena Dr, Hattiesburg, Mississippi 39401). You will not find an official data bank online, so your investigation must be performed in person assisted by the sheriff’s staff.
Revealing a person’s prior convictions
Forrest County court records are needed to find out if a person has prior convictions. Go to the office of the Circuit Clerk (630 Main Street, Hattiesburg, MS 39401, phone: 601-582-3213) and file a FOIA request to view criminal cases.
