I could not find pertinent or even extraneous details about arrest warrants or a warrant list on the website of the Wilkes County Sheriff’s Dept. However, I was happy with the fact that the agency makes it clear that they will offer police reports for criminal incidents for a small fee.
Of course, to access these tidbits from the police blotter, you will need to visit their office in person. But, apart from this tiny bit of reprieve, I could not find anything worthwhile on the agency’s site. In fact, I was surprised to not even see regular arrest records on there.
So, even for an arrest report, you will have to take the trouble of driving down to their office. Now, since a criminal check and even an arrest inquiry calls for a fair bit of running around, let me get straight to where and when you need to show up to access the arrest log and arrest warrants data.
How do I get an arrest log or a warrants list from the police of Wilkes County?
- Getting information on active warrants from the cops: As I said, you will need to visit the sheriff’s office for this information. Drive down to the law enforcement at 381 Executive Dr, Wilkesboro, NC 28697, USA.
- Seek incident reports from the law enforcement agency: You are probably wondering why I would cover the same point twice. Well, that is not what I am doing. You need to understand that a police log of the incident will have information on what happened, the victim and how the police handled the situation immediately.
Notice, how there is no mention of the perpetrator. Now, this data may or may not be included in the report even if the police have sought an arrest warrant and the process has been issued. Do you see the difference between police reports and information specific to arrest warrants?
That said, you can get incident reports by paying $1 for report copies by going to 201 Curtis Bridge Road, Wilkesboro. A member of the law enforcement staff will help you with your arrest inquiry while there.
- If you are seeking arrest reports, these can be found by contacting the Detention Center of the County. You will only be told about inmates who are currently detained at the facility and possibly on those who have been recently released on bail. You can contact the Detention Center at 502 Courthouse Drive, Wilkesboro, NC 28697 or by calling on 336-903-7623. If you are the victim of a crime, you can also get this information by calling the VINE System at 800-247-9658.
- To access the most wanted list for the area, try the Crime Stoppers webpage at http://wilkescounty.crimestoppersweb.com/index.aspx.
How do I seek criminal court records through the judiciary?
- When you need a criminal check done with certified reports, head to the Office of the Clerk of Court of Wilkes at 500 Courthouse Dr, Wilkesboro, NC 28697-2497. You will have to pay $25 for the service and it can also be requested by writing to them.
- If you are going to visit their office, make it a point to use the public terminals to look at the data held in their collection of court dockets. This is a free service and one that I highly recommend for an arrest inquiry.
