Doing an arrest warrant search in York County, ME is not half as harrowing as some people make it out to be. Yes, you will need to get in touch with a state agency in person if you need a formal background report. However, you always have the option of conducting your inquiry on active warrants and arrest records online through a third-party firm.

In both scenarios, the fees for the investigation will be limited to a few dollars. The only difference is that third-party establishments offer details on arrests and outstanding warrants from York County as well as the rest of the country, while state agencies restrict themselves to criminal history information from Maine.

Also, this data is provided online by private entities; however, to look for arrest warrant details through a state department, you will need to drive down to their office or establish communication by mail. On the same lines, where a justice agency will charge on a per inquiry basis, most private firms have the option of membership as well as one-time warrant searches.

Finally, before you take a call on who to approach for the criminal history data you need, it should be clearly understood that the information offered by third-party firms is 100% reliable and accurate, albeit it cannot be used in a formal setting. For this, you will need a background report, possibly notarized, which can only be offered by one of the state firms listed below.
