When do You call On Sampson County Police For A Warrant Search Or Arrest Records, What Information Will You Get?

I will make this simple for you- If you want more information, whether it pertains to arrest records or a warrant list from Sampson, you will have to take more trouble to get your hands on it. The Sheriff’s Dept’s website will prove to be of little help if you are looking for details from the police blotter such as the arrest log, information on arrest warrants, and the like.

On the other hand, if it is a criminal check that you are after, I would ask you to turn to the judiciary and not approach the Sheriff’s office at all. Seek an arrest report and are reasonably sure that the person in question is currently being detained at the County Jail. You can use the offender search tool available on the sheriff’s website or call the facility for the information you need.

If the warrants list you seek is meant to inform you about possible arrest orders in your name, I strongly suggest that you skip all state agencies and work with a private information provider. With that out of the way, let me tell you about the online and offline options for approaching these agencies to get the information you need.
