How to Search for Harrison County Arrest Records & Court Dockets
Harrison County arrest records display people's incarceration history and so they should be used to check if the one whose background you are checking has ever been apprehended. Court dockets will take your investigation one step further by showing you if that person has been convicted of a crime.
Carrying out an arrest search
Harrison County jail records can be found online using the inquiry tool
on the sheriff’s website. You will find files dating back to 2011 and even before that. By clicking on a name, you will get more data, such as booking and release date, type of offense, case number, arresting agency and a mugshot.
Remember that this database covers the county only. Broader information on Mississippi arrests will be found on the website of the MDOC. Their offender search
can be utilized to trace inmates in state’s facilities by name or ID number.
Harrison County warrants
The county’s active and outstanding warrants are not officially presented on the Internet. Therefore, any investigation must include visiting the sheriff office in person (1801 23rd Ave, Gulfport, MS 39501, phone: 228-865-7092) and going over their lists of wanted suspects.
One thing you should take into account – many tend to confuse Harrison County arrest records with outstanding warrants. In reality, they serve different purposes. The former show all instances in which an individual was incarcerated. The latter signify that the police strongly suspect a person for being involved in a crime and, so, he is wanted for questioning.
Carrying out a full criminal record check
The state’s Department of Public Safety stores all Mississippi criminal records, but it will be of little avail to you since their database can be accessed by authorized people and agencies only. What is left for you to do is to use private search services.
This website allows you perform a comprehensive background check on any person residing in the state. Type a name and you will get Harrison County arrest records and warrants as well as conviction records and criminal documents issued by the court. The data is reliable and up-to-date. Searchers remain anonymous. Prices are low compared to any other similar service.
Where you can obtain Harrison County court dockets
The authorities put at your disposal an electronic case search
where you can find dockets originated in the court. Take into account, however, that these dockets refer only to upcoming and not historical cases.
Running a sex offenders search
The state operates a registry
through which offenders with criminal records for sex crimes can be traced by their name or by their address. Use this service to make sure you and your family stay away from dangerous people.
