The police, the office of the magistrate and the county clerk's department are all in possession of arrest records from Shelby County Kentucky and data on all active warrants issued in the area. However, just because these agencies keep records pertaining to outstanding warrants does not mean that you will be offered this information.

You need to fit certain legally prescribed criteria in order to request such details from government agencies. For one, information on criminal history is only offered to employers who serve physically or mentally disabled individuals, senior citizens or children in some way, and hence they would like to ensure that their employees do not have prior crime records.

Although it is quintessential to keep yourself abreast of the criminal happenings in your neighborhood, the police and the judicial, entities listed below will only be able to help you in a limited sense when it comes to actual crime data. For instance, the office of the sheriff and the other agencies listed in this article will get a warrant search done for you. In the report, you will find details on all active warrants from Shelby County issued against a person.

In fact, the sheriff's office will even be able to tell you about old outstanding warrants from Shelby in the name of the person in question. Yet, when it comes to information on cases that did not result in a conviction or matters that were filed outside the state of Kentucky, these state, justice agencies will withhold relevant facts.

For this reason, it is always more convenient to approach a third party information vendor for crime history information. To find a repository of the county's arrest records and warrants, look at the form above. Alternatively, if you want to visit the state agencies that keep information on arrest warrants from the area, go to:
