Caldwell County Warrants and Arrest Records Search
The State of Texas provides you with the means to carry out a background check on any person you choose. The aim of this article is to show you step by step how you can use these means to trace Caldwell County arrest records, warrants and other court documents that will shed light on a person’s criminal history.
Initiating a Caldwell County arrest records search
Apparently there is no official online inmate locator offered by the county’s sheriff, so we suggest going for a broader inquiry that encompasses the entire state. The TDCJ will allow you to conduct a Texas inmate search with the help of a computerized data base on its website. You can find a link to this database on the offender information page.
To extract older jail records, you should refer to the Computerized Criminal History System operated by the TxDPS. This is a paid service which requires opening an account.
How to search for Caldwell County warrants
An arrest search will show you those who were apprehended by the police, but what about wanted people who have not been captured yet? Outstanding warrants can reveal those people and to find them, you are advised to visit the sheriff office (1204 Reed Drive Lockhart, TX 78644. Telephone number 512-398-6777). Their data bank contains valuable information on the county’s criminals. The sheriff staff is usually willing to share information with the public hoping to acquire some leads about fugitives.
Having said that, bear in mind that if it turns out that there is a pending arrest order with your name on it, there is a high probability that you will be incarcerated. This is the main reason why many searchers are looking for online tools.
The search box appearing on this page enables you to obtain detailed reports about a person’s criminal history. The abundant and accurate information these reports provide will teach you what you need to know about the subject’s background. Searchers’ confidentiality is strictly preserved.
Tracing court dockets
Caldwell County court records are vital since they exhibit a person’s prior convictions. However acquiring them may turn out to be a little bit more complicated:
- First, you have to turn to 2 different offices. For misdemeanor records, refer to the county clerk, the Criminal Division (phone no. 512-398-1824). For more severe reports on felony offenses, turn to the district clerk, Jury Information (phone no. 512-398-1840). The physical location of both of these offices is 1703 S. Colorado St. Lockhart, TX 78644.
- Second, none of the offices will provide you with court dockets without filing a formal FOIA request (even after you file it, 10 business day may pass till you acquire the material). To learn how to submit such a request, we recommend reading the instructions written on the website of the Texas Attorney General.
Caldwell County is a relatively small (with a population of approximately 38,900) and, therefore, the number of crimes committed in its territory is also small.

These crimes included 2 homicide cases, 12 rapes, 12 robberies, 97 assaults, 177 burglaries, 526 larceny cases, and 38 auto thefts. Police apprehended 180 people.
