Florida Warrant Search

Here are the key ways to find out if someone has an active warrant in Florida:

1. Search the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s (FDLE) Wanted Person database, which contains information on active warrants reported by law enforcement agencies nationwide.

2. Another convenient method is to search the online warrant databases of individual county sheriff’s offices. Whether the person resides in the county or the alleged crime occurred there, many counties provide this search functionality on their websites, making it easy to find the information you need.

3. Check the “Most Wanted” lists published online by law enforcement agencies like county sheriff’s offices, the Florida Highway Patrol, FBI field offices, and local Crime Stoppers programs.

4. Search court records and case information on the websites of the Clerk of Court for the relevant county. This can reveal bench warrants or failure to appear warrants.

5. Hire a private investigator or attorney who can access law enforcement databases and court records not available to the public.

The search results caution that online resources may not be fully comprehensive or up-to-date, so additional verification with the appropriate law enforcement agency is recommended if a warrant is found. Consulting an attorney can also guide the proper course of action.
