To find information on Lincoln County, Kentucky active warrants, you can head over to the police headquarters, the magistrate's office or the department of the county clerk. All three agencies are in some way connected with the process of warrant issue. While the police play a pivotal role as far as the issue of active warrants and their execution is concerned, the role of these other agencies cannot be relegated.

For instance, although the cops are entitled to prepare and submit the affidavit that eventually leads to the issue of an active warrant, the court has the final word in the matter when deciding on whether or not to grant the police such a detention order. Given the serious ramifications of such a directive on the life of the individual against whom it is issued, it is understandable why the judiciary is extra careful when releasing such decrees.

Also, once issued, these orders can persist in the system as outstanding warrants for almost 100 years, so there is certainly no escaping from the law for the accused once this order has been issued in his name.

The county clerk's office also has a role to play in the procedure albeit a passive one. They record all statements made at the pre-warrant hearing in the court dockets database and these are presented before the judge when the case comes up for hearing.

The office of the magistrate and the sheriff will have information on Lincoln arrest records as well. So, if you are looking for data on arrest warrants from the area, you can call on any of these state departments for a warrant search at:

  • Law enforcement: 102 E Main St,Stanford, Kentucky 40484
  • Judiciary: 102 W Main St, Stanford, KY 40484
  • County clerk: 102 East Main Street, Stanford, Kentucky 4048

Despite the doubling of both violent and criminal crime rates of Lincoln County, KY, only about 120 criminal reports are lodged in the area every year. While the fact that only 5% of the criminal acts are violent has put a lot of residents at ease, the growing crime trend is a cause for concern.
