Although there is no online source of information that is exclusively dedicated to Pike County, GA arrest records and warrants, you can find felons who have been convicted in the state through the Georgia Bureau of Investigations site at http://gta.georgia.gov/georgia-felon-search.
However, it is imperative to understand that only information pertaining to cases that have resulted in a conviction is disseminated through this source. So, this is far from a regular search. Also, the details provided are restricted to the state of Georgia as the Bureau does not look through the crime repositories of other states or the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
In contrast, approaching the sheriff's office for data on Pike County arrest warrants will get you additional information on your subject, the crime scenario in the area in general and this option will offer greater security. Because the police will only be too happy to apprehend a criminal based on your tip off, if you are dealing with a dangerous offender, the sheriff's office will undoubtedly be a better choice.
In contrast, if you are looking for records on the outstanding warrants against an individual for personal reasons and would also like to know if there are any other legal records in his/her name, try the office of the county clerk. They maintain the repository of court dockets which are records of trial proceedings from both the civil and criminal tribunals in the county.
Finally, when going through a Pike County warrant search, you may also want to take a peek at the information on active warrants maintained by the office of the magistrate. These agencies can be contacted at:
- The sheriff's office: PO Box 236, 89 Jackson Street, Zebulon, Georgia 30295
- The county clerk's office: PO Box 10, Zebulon, Georgia 30295
