Right off the bat, I can tell you that Cleveland County is one of my favorite areas of North Carolina when it comes to launching a warrant search, and with good reason. The Cleveland Sheriff’s Dept is forever willing to help people in need of police records. What’s amazing about these guys is that I have managed to find a wealth of information just by going through their website.
In fact, I’d go so far as to say that whether you need a warrants list or arrest records, start your offender search on the website of the agency. Only if you cannot find the criminal court records that you are looking for on their website should you take the trouble of visiting the law enforcement or a judicial office in person. Take a look at the URL’s that have it all.
How do I get help from the police for my warrant check in Cleveland, NC?
Once you are on the website of the sheriff’s department, you will see a range of options that can be used to get details on arrest warrants as well as police reports. In fact, if you were to assimilate all the details, I’d say, you would pretty much have the police blotter in your hands. For example you can:
- Find a warrant list: The page that is used to inform people about the most wanted suspects can be used as the starting point for a criminal check, particularly if you feel that your subject may have been involved in felonies. The police offers this information on http://126.96.36.199/p2c/mostwanted.aspx.
- Find an arrest log: You can learn about all arrests that have been recently made by using the facility at http://188.8.131.52/p2c/jailinmates.aspx. You can access all the arrest reports from the police blotter or you can launch an arrest inquiry by using the name of your subject.
- Find police log on an incident: The daily bulletin available at http://184.108.40.206/p2c/dailybulletin.aspx is essentially a compilation of arrests made through the day, serving of active warrants, traffic incidents, citations issued and more.
- Find information on criminal occurrences: The Sheriff’s Office also maintains a Facebook page, which is used to apprise the community of social events, dangerous criminal incidents and general safety related data. All of this is made available at https://www.facebook.com/Cleveland-County-Sheriffs-Office-157039237699058/.
How can I get a warrants list from the judicial offices of Cleveland County?
You cannot find a complete list of outstanding warrants issued by the courts of Cleveland from the judiciary. Although, the Clerk of Court does maintain this information, you will not be able to access it unless you have the name of a subject/subjects. However, you can launch a criminal check through this agency. To do so, you can:
- Go to their office at 100 Justice Place, Shelby, NC 28150 and find yourself a public service terminal. These computers are connected to the database of court cases. So, with just the name of the subject, you will be able to find all criminal and civil processes initiated against and by this individual. They charge a small fee for printouts but otherwise, the computers are yours to use free of charge.
- You can also request that a deputy from the office handle the warrant search for you. This is the official way to launch a background search because you will get a certified report in response. But, you will have to pay the Clerk’s office $25 for the service.
