Conducting a Hays County warrant and Arrest Search
Locating Hays county warrants and other types of criminal records can be a little cumbersome since searchers will need to turn to a couple of sources simultaneously to obtain all the information necessary for a complete background check. This article will present these sources.
The sheriff office has three main records divisions you can turn to
- The Law Enforcement Division is the place where you can find outstanding warrants. You can contact them via the phone by dialing 512-393-7824.
- The Juvenile Division maintains data related to crimes committed by juveniles. Their phone number is 512-393-7814. Since minors are involved, some of the information may not be available to the public. You will need to file a formal FOIA request to view certain files.
- If you are interested in initiating a Hays County arrest search, you should refer to the Jail Division. They maintain updated arrest reports on all persons that are currently incarcerated in the county jail. Their phone number is 512-393-7821. Alternatively, you can directly turn to the jail's administration for an inmate inquiry. Their phone number is 512-393-7800. Their location is 195 Roger Hanks Parkway, Dripping Springs, Texas 78620.
If you are interested in arrest records that go back to previous years, we advise using the online search tool provided by the TxDPS. Results will include a person's full criminal history including prosecutions for offenses more severe than Class B misdemeanor. This database encompasses the entire State of Texas. Its only disadvantage is that it requires opening an account and disclosing some personal information (e.g. your current address).
To do a statewide inmate search, you may use the online offender information tool maintained by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. You can conduct your investigation by typing one of the following: A person's full name, TDCJ Number or SID Number.
Lastly, if you are interested in finding most of the information using one source only, we suggest utilizing the search form on this web page. Results come from multiple public and private sources and they are highly reliable. Confidentiality is 100% guaranteed.
Hays County Court Records
Fortunately, finding the county's court dockets is easier thanks to an effective online case search tool that enables you to find civil as well as criminal records. For further information, we advise turning to the county clerk and district clerk.
Bear in mind, the Texas Public Information Act entitles you to view governmental files, so why not using free and available information to your advantage?
