Where to find Jacinto County arrest records
San Jacinto County does not provide an online jail roster through which you can find an inmate. Therefore, we recommend referring to more extensive databases run by the state. There are, in fact, two databases we recommend:
- The Texas Department of Public Safety maintains an online criminal history search which presents a person prior arrests all over the state. Only arrests for offenses more serious than Class B misdemeanor appear in the database. You will have to sign up and buy credit to use this service.
- The TDCJ operate a computerized offender search that displays inmates incarcerated in the state’s prisons.
How to Access court dockets
To obtain copies San Jacinto County court records, visit the County Clerk Office at 1 State Hwy 150, Room 2, Coldspring, TX 77331 (phone number: 936-653-2324).You can also use their public computer to conduct your own search during normal business hours.

They do not have an online search tool; however, you can mail the Officer for Public Information a written FOIA request with the specific information you are looking for. If you do not receive a response to your request within a reasonable amount of time, contact your local District Attorney. For specific instructions regarding how to request public information, refer to the website of the Attorney General of Texas.
