The Best Way to Find Goliad County Arrest Records and Warrants

If you are interested in carrying out a criminal background check on another person (or on yourself), you will find this article quite useful as it will show you what you need to do to find Goliad County arrest records and warrants

Tracking a person’s incarceration history

To obtain Goliad County arrest records, turn to the local jail. They can be contacted directly at 361-645-8259 or through the sheriff office at 361-645-3451.

They might not be willing to give you information beyond current detainees, so you will need to go to the sheriff (address: Goliad County Sheriff’s Office. 701 E. End St.Goliad, Texas 77963) to inquire about a person’s prior arrests.

Carrying out a Goliad County warrant search

Arrest warrants are issued against a person who is suspected of involvement in a criminal activity. To run an inquiry about local Goliad County warrants, you will need to call the Justice of Peace Office using one of these numbers: 361-645-3663, 361-645-3320.

How to get copies of criminal records

Texas Law enables you to request copies of criminal records. The procedure involves the following:

  • Downloading an open records request from the sheriff’s website (here)
  • Submitting the form to the sheriff in person, via fax (361-645-2230), by email or U.S. Mail (see address above). You will have to wait up to 10 business days to get the file and pay a fee of $5.

Obtaining court records

Another way to track a person’s criminal history is to gain access to Goliad County court records. These records will tell if that person was found guilty of a crime. For misdemeanor records, you are advised to turn to the County Clerk (Phone: 361-645-3294). For Felony records, go to the District clerk (Phone: 361-645-3294). Under Texas Public Information Act, the authorities are obligated to reveal court dockets in their possession.

For your information, Goliad County arrest records are not court records. The former show incarceration history. The latter show conviction history.

Expanding your background check

Texas arrest warrants can be sought using the Criminal History Name Search tool maintained by the TxDPS. This state’s data bank presents people incarcerated in all TX counties for offenses more severe than Class B misdemeanor. Searchers must register and pay for the service.

Another option – you can conduct a thorough Texas background check by using the advanced tool found on texasarrestwarrants.org. Just type a person’s name and you will be given a full criminal history report containing Goliad County arrest records, warrants, court dockets. The report also contains police records issued in the entire state (and even the entire nation- you define the search scope).

All data is updated. Your confidentiality is promised. Fees are low.
