The office is located at 8 Bushnell Avenue, Monticello, NY 12701 (Telephone: (845) 794-7100). Beware of appearing in person to search records against yourself, as you will be arrested immediately if an outstanding warrant exists for your arrest.

Sullivan County has numerous County Towns and Villages in which local courts issue arrest warrants. To search for outstanding warrants, you need to contact the individual courts in each town. In order to narrow your search, check with the town court where the crime allegedly took place or where the suspect resides.
