How to Search for Durham County Arrest Records
This article will assist you in tracing criminal histories of other people. It will present the sources you can use to obtain Durham County arrest records and conduct a warrant search. Some of the sources are provided by the county's authorities. Others are provided by the state, and so they are obviously more comprehensive.
Where can you search for Durham County arrest records?
Naturally, the sheriff is the relevant authority that stores data on incarcerations made in the county. Their website contains an inmate search tool
through which you can view arrest data from the last 30 days. The information shown covers aspects such as the detainee's booking and release date, the type of offense he or she has committed, bond type and amount, and court docket number.
Another way to carry out your inquiry is to refer to the searchable database
managed by the North Carolina Department of Public Safety. It is, in fact, an advanced online offender search service that encompasses all of the state's correctional centers. You can view current and past prison records and acquire information on inmate releases.
Finding Durham County warrants
The sheriff's Records Division
carries out criminal record checks, so they should be your primary source for obtaining information on Durham County warrants and thus finding out if a certain person is wanted by the police. They can be contacted by dialing 919-560-0905. They are located at the Courthouse at 510 S Dillard St, Durham, NC 27701. Working hours are from Monday to Friday, 8:30 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon. Bear in mind that the information provided is not cheap: a criminal history check will cost you 10 – 13.3 dollars (depending on whether you choose to pay cash or use a credit card).
Finding dockets issued by the court
To run a case search, contact the clerk of court. They store all of Durham County court records. You should visit the Criminal Filings Division where you can file a request for a criminal record check to learn about a person's prosecutions and convictions history.
They are located at the Courthouse (see address above), room no. 1300. You can also call them at 919-808-3007.
Using NC sex offender registry
Sex offenses are seen by many law enforcement officials as the most heinous of all crimes. For this reason, the state puts at your disposal a registry
that contains the names and exact address of released sex offenders. The search process is 100% web-based. It is simple and free of charge. You can focus on an offender's name or place of residence.
