Undertaking a Kerr County Arrest Records and Warrant Search
Kerr County warrants empower the police to take a person into custody for a crime he has allegedly committed. Of course, the burden of proof lies on the authorities to establish guilt and that can be done only in court. So even if you are detained as a result of an arrest order that was issued against you, you are still considered innocent until indicated otherwise.
To initiate a warrant search in Kerr County, pay a visit to the sheriff office (400 Clearwater Paseo, Kerrville, Texas 78028) and check their wanted persons list. Their databases are fed with information that is flowing from all of the county’s law enforcement agencies. If there is a chance that your name appears on that wanted list, it will be foolish to arrive in person at any police station. Send a friend or a relative to find the information for you.
