Ellis County Arrest Records and Warrant Search

To keep away from trouble, it is always recommended to examine the background of people with whom you interact on a daily basis. Due to the availability of information, it is quite easy to find Ellis County warrants and arrest records. All you have to do is use the relevant offline and online sources.

Performing an Ellis County warrant search

We would recommend starting your inquiry by contacting the sheriff’s warrant division at (972) 825-4920 or (972) 877-2303. Texas Public Information Act obligates them to provide you with criminal information (unless the case is concealed under court’s order or it is currently under investigation). However, they might ask you to appear at the sheriff office in person to obtain the information. You might not want to do that if you have any unresolved issues with the law.

So, alternatively you may choose to opt for online sources. The search form on this page will enable you to carry out a criminal background check either on yourself or on anybody else residing in Texas. All inquiries are 100% confidential.

Carrying out an Ellis County arrest search

The sheriff office provides an inmate search tool that will display names of persons that are currently in custody. Those who were released will not be included in the database. To locate Texas arrest records from the past, refer to the state’s Computerized Criminal History System. Be advised, it does not include Class C misdemeanor violations.

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice has an excellent online inmate inquiry tool that covers all of the correctional facilities in the state. It will show an inmate’s TDCJ number, race, gender, DOB, release date and the prison or jail where he or she is held.
