Most people walk into the office of the sheriff when they need to get an Okfuskee County arrest warrant search conducted. This approach is based on the assumption that only the police department has information on criminal matters. It is imperative to understand that the role of the OK judiciary cannot be ignored when conducting such inquiries.
In fact, depending on what kind of information you need, you will find the judicial option far more to your advantage. For instance, the office of the county clerk can offer both criminal as well as civil data. Because this agency is perpetually present in the court rooms across the state, you will find details on all types of cases and litigations through them.
The court of the magistrate that issues Okfuskee County arrest warrants also keeps information pertaining to these orders. In fact, they maintain a database of all legal orders that are granted by the judiciary. So, if a criminal summons were issued in lieu of outstanding warrants for arrests, you will find out about these and more through the magistrate's office.
On the same lines, the police will be able to tell you about arrest records, active warrants, verdicts and sentencing but nothing about civil matters. So, pick the agency based on the kind of data you need. These departments can be contacted at:
