Get a Free Arrest Report in Chatham County, NC!

Who does not want free information? I, for one, am always happy to get a warrant search done without paying for it. Unfortunately, you won’t find this facility from every sheriff’s dept, and Chatham County happens to have a law enforcement agency that keeps a tight grip on the criminal records they offer online.

Now, I don’t hold this against them because although it is convenient for people to access details on arrest warrants through the police website, this may alert suspects and make it harder to detain them. That said, you can get access to a part of the police blotter on the Sheriff’s website. So, if you are looking for arrest records, you are likely to find them online. Continue reading to know about URLs and offices where you can go for a warrant check.

Can I get help from the judiciary in my warrant search?

Like the police, the judiciary will help you with a warrant check request. However, they do not put up the court docket database online. This means you only have two options: you can either visit them and use the public terminals in the lobby to find the court docket you need, or you can pay them to do a warrant search for you. 

  • The Clerk of Superior Court’s main office is located at 40 E Chatham Street, Pittsboro, NC 27312, and you can mail them at PO Box 369, Pittsboro, NC 27312.
  • The alternate office can be found at 311 N Second Ave, Siler City, NC 27344; their mailing address is the same as their physical address.

Now, let me tell you when you should open up your wallet for the criminal check. If you need a certified report, the Clerk’s Office can get this for you. They do allow both self and third-party background checks. The report can be used for a host of official purposes. However, it is essential to understand that this is a name-based and not a fingerprint check. The only other search criteria used is the date of birth.
