Greenville County Arrest Records and Warrant Search
Greenville County arrest records will tell you if a person has been incarcerated in the past. This person can be your kid's nanny, your employee or even the new guy dating your daughter. To be able to conduct a full criminal records search, you also have to get access to the county's warrants and court records.
How to perform a Greenville County arrest search
The county's website contains an inquiry tool
that displays incarcerated inmates with mugshots and details on their offenses, the agency that incarcerated them and charge and sentence dates. You will also find bond information, a warrant number and most importantly – the unit that houses the detainee in the county jail.

To perform a broader arrest inquiry that includes all of SC counties, refer to the inmate lookup tool
