How To Run an Ohio Warrant Search

If you want to run an Ohio warrant search on yourself or another person you are in luck. Since a person’s Ohio warrant record is public domain, anyone can quickly find out if there is an active OH warrant out for their arrest or a bench warrant for a failure to appear in court. There are a few simple steps to running an Ohio warrant search and it starts with gathering some basic information. Here are some simple ways to find out if someone, including yourself, has an active Ohio warrant:

  1. Gather the full name and age or birthdate of the person you want to run an Ohio warrant search on
  2. Find a reputable public record website or a specific state sponsored warrant search
  3. Enter the full name of the person you want to inquire about, including their middle name
  4. Once you view your Ohio warrant record results make sure to verify it’s the correct record for the correct person
  5. Make sure you use the information as intended and allowed by the service you used. Some resources are intended for research and reference only

Many online public record resources also offer search assistance if you get stuck. It’s a good idea to use the search assistance if you are uncertain of your results or you cannot find what you are looking for.

What You Can Find with an Ohio Warrant Search

  1. Full name of the person in question 
  2. Age and birth date 
  3. Their physical description and mugshot (if available) 
  4. Address and contact information (if available) 
  5. The type of warrant (such as arrest warrants and bench warrants) 
  6. Time and date the warrant was issued
  7. Court or judge that issued the Ohio warrant 
  8. Criminal charges against the individual 
  9. Criminal background history of the individual 

It’s important to note that not all warrant record resources are reported in real-time. Some Ohio warrant record and background check information may vary depending on what information is available. Once you have found the warrant record you are looking for, it’s a good idea to verify you have the correct record for the right person. Many people in the state of Ohio have the same name so additional information such as a middle name or birthdate can help to verify the person in question. 

What is an Arrest Warrant in Ohio?

Arrest warrants in Ohio are covered by the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. In order for an Ohio arrest warrant to be issued, a law enforcement agency must have a legitimate legal reason to suspect a person of a crime, or violating probation or parole, and go before a judge who will then fill out all the OH arrest warrant. The warrant will have a full description of the person to be arrested as well as their criminal charges. When the judge issues an arrest warrant, any Ohio law enforcement official can then arrest the person on sight. People being arrested in this fashion will usually be detained in a county jail or detention center until they are arraigned in front of the judge

What is a Bench Warrant in Oho?

An Ohio bench warrant is commonly issued by a judge for a person’s failure to appear in court as required. The term “Bench” refers to the judge’s bench, who issues these types of warrants. This can be a result for an ongoing criminal court case for a serious crime or something as little as a traffic citation, which is also a considered a criminal infraction. A bench warrant can lead to a person being arrested and detained, but in some situations a simple re-booking of the court appearance can mitigate that person being arrested. Bench warrants are issued for both criminal and civil court cases and they are typically issued with the intent to get that person to the courthouse for an ongoing court case. If you suspect you have an Ohio bench warrant then you may want to contact the clerk of the court to reschedule your appearance or consult with an attorney for legal advise.

This electronic system has made a very positive impact in how law enforcement can coordinate with other agencies to apprehend individuals with outstanding OH warrants.

Ohio Arrest Warrants for Violating Parole

In Ohio, an arrest warrant is typically issued for a parole violation when a parole officer reports this to a judge and they issue a warrant for that persons arrest. If you or someone you know was previously incarcerated and may have violated parole orders, there are some simple ways to find out if there is an Ohio arrest warrant for yourself or another person of interest.

  1. One way to perform an Ohio warrant search is to check the website of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, which maintains a list of currently-wanted parole violators
  2. Another option is to visit the relevant Ohio county sheriffs website and use their warrant search tool, if available
  3. Visit the Ohio county courthouse website and run an Ohio arrest warrant check if they allow online access to their court issued warrants
  4. Use a third-party public record website. This is a good option if you want to search statewide or nationwide as many local county resources only show your results for the Ohio county they represent
  5. Contact your parole officer to confirm if you have violated parole if all the other methods above do not reveal anything
