Christian County Arrest Records and Warrants
Christian County arrest records indicate whether a certain individual has been incarcerated in the past. It should be noted that incarceration does not equal conviction. That is, those who have been taken into custody (for various reasons) are considered innocent of any crime unless guilt was established in court.
How to track inmates in the county and state
Christian County arrest records are presented on the official jail website
. You will find an alphabetical lists of detainees plus an inquiry tool in which you can type first or last name. The details that will be revealed include a mugshot (in most cases); date, description and type of offense; disposition; and case and offense date. For additional information (especially if a name does not appear on the search), you had better contact the jailer at 270-887-4152.
Where to look for information on KY arrests
The Kentucky Department of Corrections operates a computerized offender search
(KOOL) where you can locate an inmate all over the state. You just need a name and you can choose to view results with or without photos.
Searching for Christian County warrants
Searchers will not be able to find an official online data bank that displays Christian County warrants. Therefore, if you want to view the county's wanted persons list, you will need to drop by the sheriff office (216 W 7th St, Hopkinsville, KY 42240. Telephone: 270-887-4143) and perform your investigation with the assistance of the deputies or a staff member.
Take into consideration that if you are checking about your own criminal history and it is discovered that there is an outstanding warrant with your name on it, you might be apprehended.
Christian County court dockets
If you want your background check to cover a person's history of prosecutions and convictions, refer to the website of the Kentucky Court of Justice
. It presents pending court records by county (on the left bar, choose the relevant county).
The Court of Justice also provides criminal record reports for a fee of 20 dollars. Request for the files can be submitted in person (at the Administrative Office of the Courts, 1001 Vandalay Drive, Frankfort) via mail (For exact address, visit their website
) or on the Internet
Locating sex offenders
To find out whether people involved in your life (your neighbor, your kids' babysitter or the one you are dating) have a criminal record for sex offenses, we recommend the KY sex offender registry
. Inquiries can be done based on an offender's name, email or address.
