Wharton County Arrest Records and Warrant Search

It is your responsibility to make sure you or your loved ones will not get in harm’s way. Therefore, you might want to perform a criminal background check on people you associate with to find out if they have a criminal record. This check consists of tracing arrest records and outstanding warrants.

Undertaking a Wharton County arrest search

There are two useful sources within the sheriff office that will help you locate Wharton County arrest records. Start with the Jail Division. Contact them to find out if anyone you know is held in the county jail. Their telephone numbers are 979-282- 9555 or 979-543-1373   (ext. 236).

For a more thorough search that will also reveal former detainees, contact the sheriff’s Record Division at 979-532-1550 or visit them in person at 315 East Elm St. Wharton, TX 77488.

You have an option to carry out a more comprehensive inquiry to include all of Texas:

  • To view a person’s arrest history all over the state, go to the computerized database maintained by the TxDPS. The search engine does not include minor offenses. In addition, you will be required to open an account.
  • To run a Texas inmate search, refer to the TDCJ’s online offenders database. Search parameters include the following: an inmate’s name, TDCJ number or SID number. You can narrow the search by including gender and race as well.

How to obtain Wharton County court records

If you wish to find out whether the person whose background you are checking has ever been convicted of a crime, you should trace the county’s criminal court dockets. There are two offices that can assist you:
