In Muscogee County, Georgia, arrest warrants are issued by the Municipal Court. Once they have been issued, they are processed by the Administrative Bureau of the county sheriff’s office. Both active and outstanding warrants are then executed by the Uniform Patrol Division of the sheriff’s office, often working closely with the Criminal Investigations/Felony Apprehension/Intelligence Division. An active warrant has been issued but not yet executed, and an outstanding warrant is an active warrant that hasn’t been completed after a certain period.
If you wish to check on a warrant, the Muscogee County sheriff’s department used to maintain a free online database that allowed you to search for outstanding warrants by the alleged offender’s name and gender. In a recent search, I could not find that online option anymore. The Municipal Court, which issues the warrants, is located on the Consolidated Government Center tower’s eighth floor, at 100 10th Street, Columbus, GA, 31901. The sheriff’s office also posts a list of Most Wanted offenders, located online at https://ccg-domino9.columbusga.org/APPL/MCSOFugitive.nsf/Web?OpenPage.
Furthermore, the department also lists arrest records for the most recent fourteen days and the names of inmates who are currently incarcerated. To contact the sheriff’s office, you can visit their location at Columbus Consolidated Government, 4th Floor of the Tower, 100 10th Street, Columbus, GA, 31901. The Muscogee County detention facility is located at 700 10th Street.
