Rome is the home to the Floyd County, GA Magistrate Court. This is where you will want to go to conduct a warrant search in Floyd County. When I say “go,” I mean physically go because arrest warrants are not available online for this county. The Magistrate Court is responsible for issuing arrest warrants after a hearing to determine probable cause. Once the warrant has been issued, a Sheriff’s office will arrest the person based on the outstanding warrant. To contact the Floyd County Magistrate, you can visit the office at 3 Government Plaza, Suite 227, Rome, GA 30161. Most Magistrate Courts will not give any information over the telephone about active or outstanding warrants.
To search the records for criminal dockets, you would go to the Clerk of Court for Superior Court.

The Clerk’s office is responsible for maintaining the court records for criminal cases. The Clerk’s website lists the specific people that work with the criminal records with the telephone number and email address for each person. You may be able to obtain some information by telephone or email; however, most Clerks offices will regard you come to the office in person to search for warrants and criminal records.
You can also check with the Warrants Division of the Floyd County Sherriff’s office for outstanding warrants. The Sherriff’s office maintains an online list of the county’s most wanted, including a picture, if available, and the charge or charges.
