Although the state of Georgia has its own version of the Freedom of Information Act which has opened up government databases for the public, looking for arrest records and active warrant related information can still be cumbersome task in Crisp County, GA.
For one, despite holding on to a significant amount of data on crimes committed in the state, government agencies involved in the judiciary and law enforcement offer little by way of online records. In fact, even the Georgia State Crime Information Center (GCIC) only provides internet based results in case of felony convictions.
This means that if the case was dismissed or if the matter was downgraded to a misdemeanor, in spite of a conviction, you will not find information on it. Also, because not all arrests end in jail time, it would be nearly impossible to get accurate results for a search on outstanding warrants or even through the information offered by the Department of Corrections.
So when doing a warrant search in Crisp County, GA, if you want more than just a “yes or no” answer and would like specific details on all cases that the subject was ever involved in, it would be best to get in touch with local justice agencies. You can get in touch with:
- The magistrate: 210 7th St S, Cordele, GA 31015
- The county clerk: South 7th Street, Cordele, Georgia 31015
- The sheriff: 196 GA Highway 300 South, Cordele, Georgia 31015.
The offices of the magistrate and the clerk of court are clubbed under the state judiciary and will be able to provide information on arrest warrants in specific cases including civil matters. The sheriff’s department of Crisp, Georgia will also be able to offer data on most wanted criminals in the county and also on any detentions that did not lead to a conviction.
