How To Perform a Louisiana Warrant Search

There are two main motives of making arrest and warrant records publicly available: It allows for citizens to ascertain if they are due to pay for a crime or offence committed, and it also allows citizens to be aware and inform the authorities of any law breakers around them. That ensures the community is safer and that the guilty pay for their crimes. A Louisiana warrant search online can be performed online with anonymity though a public record website. The first thing you want to do is gather up some information, you will need the full name of the person you want to search. Then enter their information into the search form and go. Once your results are available you can sort through them to find the correct one. There are occasionally multiple records listed for people with the same first and last name so you might need their middle name or initial, or age, to find the correct one. Then once you made it to the report page, you will be able to see that person’s active Louisiana arrest warrants, bench warrants, criminal charges, police records, court case records, convictions and sentencings.

Louisiana Warrants and Criminal Records

If you want to know the difference between warrants and criminal records, you are not alone. This is a very commonly asked question. While they are considered both a public record and a criminal record, here are some of the differences. A warrant is an order for arrest or a court order, whereas a criminal record contains detailed information about a person’s interactions with the criminal justice system, including arrests, convictions, and sentencing. Though warrants are considered criminal records, they do not necessarily mean that a person has been convicted of a crime. However, once a person is arrested using a warrant, this arrest will also appear on their criminal record. This means that if you run a background check on someone you will see these in their criminal history. 

Looking Up Louisiana Warrants Through State Agencies

Since warrants in Louisiana are public records, there are a few ways to search for them though state agencies. It’s important to note that not all the local and county agencies have online searchable resources, you may need to visit an office in person or call in your request. 

  • County Sheriff’s Departments: They maintain updated lists of outstanding warrants, fugitives and most wanted. They are one of the main government agencies that enforce and serve active Louisiana arrest warrants. 
  • Louisiana State Police: They have an online searchable wanted persons database for background checks and criminal records, which include warrants. This can be a good resource to search statewide however, it is not anonymous.
  • County Clerk’s Office: This office often holds records of issued arrest and bench warrants and can provide information on specific individuals. 
  • County Courthouse Clerk: If you know what county in LA that a warrant was issued, then you can visit the county or city court website to search there, if that’s an option. Or, you can call the courthouse clerk directly to inquire about a bench or arrest warrant, or your court records. 
  • Louisiana State Department of Corrections The Louisiana Department of Corrections provides information regarding the records of inmates. They could be currently held, and wanted fugitives. The department responds to telephone inquiries.

Do I Have an Active Warrant in Louisiana?

This is the question that a lot of people ask online, and this question is relatively easy to answer with online public record websites. Whether it is a bench warrant or an arrest warrant, these are both searchable online, and you can search anonymously with these online public record resources. Below are some tips to handle having a warrant in Louisiana.

  • Research The Warrant Type: It’s important to know if you have a bench warrant or an arrest warrant as these are handled much differently. If you merely have a Louisiana bench warrant, then you can often fix this by rescheduling a missed court date or jury duty or paying any overdue court fines or fees. If it’s a Louisiana arrest warrant, then continue on to the next step. 
  • Consult With a Defense Attorney: Before turning yourself in or taking any action on your own, it’s wise to consult with a LA criminal defense attorney familiar with Louisiana’s laws. They can provide crucial guidance, and possibly negotiate with the court on your behalf, and ensure your rights are protected. 
  • Consider Turning Surrendering Yourself: Talk to your attorney first, but often times you will need to surrender yourself to law enforcement, which is a solid gesture to the courts that shows that you are in compliance and acknowledging your criminal charges. Your attorney can guide you to the best time and place, making the process more controlled and less dramatic than an unexpected arrest. 
  • Prepare Your Defense: Regardless of the circumstances, always remain calm and respectful towards the courts. You are not guilty until proven so, it’s important to remember that until the judge, or jury, makes their decision, your charges are just allegations. Use the time you have to prepare your criminal defense strategy with your attorney.
