Nationwide Wants and Warrants

This is a nationwide search of active, extraditable federal and state warrants, which may include felonies and misdemeanors for the requested subject. This service identifies any current arrest warrants, along with the issuing agency. Agencies and organizations like local and county police, sheriff’s offices, county and district courts, state district attorneys, the state’s department of corrections, probation and parole boards, and federal law enforcement agencies like the DEA, FBI, and the United States Marshall Service report their warrants. Where potential warrant information is identified, we research further with the issuing agency. However, not all law enforcement agencies contribute to this data source.

What's included?

On any given day thousands of government agencies across the US issue and serve warrants and withdraw warrants, because of an arrest or court appearance, or having been vacated, recalled, or otherwise withdrawn. The typical turnaround time for obtaining wants and warrant information is one business day after we receive the release form for this specific search.arrow down

What information may be reported on a nationwide wants & warrant search?

  • Jurisdiction for the warrant
  • Contact phone number

Do take into account that while our goal is to update our instant database with new counties and new county records regularly, it is possible that a traditional on-premise court house search would provide more up-to-date information and could, for example, show that a criminal record with a pending case status in our instant data base has been recently dismissed.
