How to Inquire about Erie County Warrants and Arrest Records
Want to make sure your neighbor / employee / the guy you have been dating lately are not wanted by any local or state law enforcement agency? We recommend contacting the sheriff office so as to inquire about Erie County warrants (Phone: (716) 858-7618; Address: Erie County Sheriff's Office 10 Delaware Ave. Buffalo, New York 14202).
Unless we are talking about minors (whose records are usually sealed) or a case under active police investigation, the authorities will tend to cooperate regarding updated information on Erie County warrants. They believe helping the public will eventually pay off as they will get information in return regarding the whereabouts of wanted fugitives.
What about an arrest inquiry?
Erie County arrest records are presented online on PDF files
on the sheriff website. These files contain names of current inmates, their ICN #, the exact facility where they are held and booking date.
You may also attempt to contact directly the county's correctional facility at 716-858-7618 to make an inquiry about a specific inmate.
