How to Perform a Criminal Record Check in Frio County, Texas

A criminal record check in Frio County should be conducted with the help of three major governmental bodies: The local jail, the sheriff office and the Clerk of Court. Each will supply you with different kind of information that together will reveal a person’s full criminal history.

Finding Frio County arrest records

The local detention center should be the primary source for an arrest search in the county. They will be able to tell you if a person is now in custody or was incarcerated in the past. They can be reached by dialing 830-334-3320. Their physical address is 410 South Cedar St. Pearsall, TX, 78061.

Where to look for Texas arrest records

To perform an inquiry that covers a person’s incarceration history all over the state, we strongly recommend the online data bank maintained by the TxDPS. It shows arrests made in all of TX counties for crimes of Class B misdemeanor or higher. Users must sign up and pay for this service.

To find current inmates in the state’s correctional facilities, use the TDCJ’s online offender search. No fees and no registration are required.

How to do a warrant search

You will not find any governmental inquiry tool on the Internet that presents Frio County warrants. Therefore, you will need to drop by the sheriff office (502 South Cedar Street, Pearsall, TX 78061. Phone: 830-334-3311) and run an offline investigation. Caution is advised. If it is discovered there is an active warrant on your name, you might be apprehended.

Where you can obtain official copies of Frio County court records

Criminal court dockets issued for misdemeanor offenses can be obtained at the office of the County Clerk (ph: 830-334-2214). Felony records can be accessed at the office of the District Clerk (ph: 830-334-8073). Both can be found at 500 East San Antonio Street.

You will probably be demanded to fill in and submit a FOIA request. The Texas Attorney General explains how to do it.

Locating the whereabouts of sex offenders

To initiate a sex offender search, use the state’s registry. Offenders can be located based on name, address or academic institution.
