If you are uncertain whether an arrest warrant has been issued in your name, you should do a warrant search. Arrest warrants for Wyoming County are issued after a judge hears testimony or receives a complaint establishing probable cause for an arrest warrant’s issuance. Once the judge signs the warrant, it becomes an active warrant served by law enforcement officers in Wyoming County.
If you want to find out if an arrest warrant has been issued, your first step is to search the court records of Wyoming County. Because most arrest warrants begin with a criminal action in the Supreme Court or the County Court, you should contact the County Clerk’s Office to search public court records. The office is located at 143 North Main Street, Suite 104 in Warsaw, NY 14569 (telephone: 585-786-8810). This office can assist you with obtaining copies of court records in addition to searching for arrest warrants issued by either court.
Your best resource is the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office to find outstanding warrants that have yet to be served. The Sheriff’s Office is charged with administering and executing the arrest warrants issued by Wyoming County courts. You can contact the Records Division for the Sheriff’s Office at 151 North Main Street in Warsaw, NY 14569 (telephone: 585-786-8989). Ask for someone in the Records Division who can help you obtain copies of arrest records (for arrest warrants that have already been executed) or who can provide you with information on outstanding warrants.
