The purpose of providing this information is described by the Sheriff?s office as that which can help the residents of Cook County, Illinois, to make themselves aware of the people who are ?Wanted? in a community. It also serves as an effective mechanism for people to report important information, like the whereabouts of such fugitives. To begin a Cook County Warrant Search online use the above form.

The list of people in this database have had warrants for arrests for different Cook County court proceedings, may they be civil or criminal.

    1. Alisha, we understand your situation and this is a legal matter that you should discuss with a lawyer. Unfortunately we cannot assist you with this as we are a public record website without any direct affiliation with any government agency. You mentioned that this person was fingerprinted which means you have quantifiable evidence that it is not you. Seeking legal counsel will most likely be the best way to proceed since you have not been able to resolve it on your own. It is possible there is a precedence for your specific type of identity theft which can help expedite a resolution. If you would like us to lookup a warrant record we are happy to help but we cannot give you any specific advise except retaining the assistance of legal counsel in Chicago.
