Where and Kow to Look for DeKalb Count Arrest RecordsGeorgia Open Records Act enables you to gain access to formal governmental documents, among which are DeKalb County arrest records. These records will help you trace a person incarceration history. The problem is that most people do not know where to look for them. The following article will present the available online and offline databases that can be used for a criminal background check.
Carrying out an arrest inquiryTo initiate a DeKalb County arrest records search use the Online Judicial System.

Guidelines for initiating a DeKalb County warrant searchThe most efficient way to garner information on DeKalb County warrants is to contact the sheriff's Warrant Unit by dialing 404-298-6200. It is also recommended contacting the county's Police Department, Central Records Unit at 770-724-7740.
Searching for DeKalb County court recordsNot all people who are arrested are prosecuted. For this reason, DeKalb County arrest records will not be able to give you an indication whether a certain individual has ever been convicted of a crime. To trace a person's convictions history, you will need to obtain access to court dockets. We suggest using again the OJC (see link above). It offers an online civil and a criminal case search. It enables you to base your inquiry on a person's name, case ID, case type and status, court code and date.
Initiating an online criminal record checkThere are two main databases we strongly recommend:

- The Georgia Technology Authority operates a felon search that shows a person's criminal records and incarceration history in all of GA counties. Every inquiry demands a $15fee – which can be very expensive if you want to search more than one name.
