If residents are interested in a Henderson County warrant search, they can approach any of the local justice agencies mentioned later in this article. However, remember that while most of these government departments will tell you about any outstanding warrants against your subject, you will have no way of finding out about prior arrest records and any active warrants issued in ongoing cases against this person.
Such information is only offered to organizations that handle the care and treatment of individuals who are physically or mentally challenged, old, or are minors. These agencies are allowed to request a background report on prospective employees in their quest to keep anti-social elements away from their clients.
However, as an individual, you will only be told about any old arrest warrants from Henderson County against your subject. Information on active warrants is usually withheld for fear that it might be wrongly used by people who have such an order out in their name. In contrast, Henderson County’s arrest records are not offered to the general public because the law wants to give ex-offenders a chance to work and live normally in society.

Henderson County has a meager crime average, and this might be the reason why the local sheriff’s office has been more than lax about submitting annual crime figures to the state records-keeping agency. In fact, crime statistics are only available for 2006, and these show an annual rate of just about 160 incidents.
