To start a Knox County arrest warrant search, you will need some preliminary information which will be used to scour through the database of ME arrest records held by justice agencies. Even though the police offer the facility to conduct fingerprint inquiries along with name based investigations, for the former, you will need to get the subject involved in the process which may not always be an option.
In contrast, name based searches for arrest warrants can be conducted discreetly. Apart from the first, middle and last names of the subject, you will also be asked to provide the age, and date of birth. This will help to reduce the possibility of false results. Once you have the information you need for your inquiry, take it to the office of the sheriff or the magistrate.
You can also get in touch with the department of the county clerk for details on active warrants and arrests. Although this agency does not get directly involved in the issue or execution of Knox County outstanding warrants, they have criminal as well as civil court dockets on file. So, you can access information on all legal matters that involve the person being investigated in any way.
