If you are interested in getting a Lincoln County arrest warrant search done, you will find a range of choices when it comes to sources of information, the mode of inquiry as well as the type and amount of data offered in response. So, here is a look at how you can investigate ME arrest records and active warrants without too much trouble and money.
Since cops make all arrests, with and without Lincoln County active warrants, of course, the sheriff's office would be the ideal place to start any inquiry on criminal history.What's more is that along with information on the subject, you could also find generic details about the crime scenario in the county and the most wanted list.
As with the judicial agencies that will be discussed ahead, you will have to visit the sheriff's office to avail the warrant search facility. A form will need to be filled; in it, you will be asked to provide information about the subject and the applicant. Alternatively, it is also possible to contact the police by writing to them.
The magistrate's court will follow a similar procedure; however, along with details on Lincoln County outstanding warrants, you will also be able to request information on the bench warrants and the criminal summons that can be found in the judicial system against the subject. The contact details of these agencies along with the office of the county clerk are as follows:
- The police: 42 Bath Rd, PO Box 611, Wiscasset, Maine 04578
- The judiciary: 32 High St, Wiscasset, ME 04578
- The clerk of court: PO box 249, Wiscasset, Maine 04578
With an annual crime total of about 450 cases, Lincoln County, Maine does seem better off than the other areas of the state in terms of criminal incident frequency. However, this may change in the near future as the police have neither been able to get a grip on the rise of almost 60% in the rate of violent crimes nor on the growth of nearly 45% in reported criminal activity.
