Arrest warrants are usually issued for many reasons by the police though mainly when a crime is committed by a person and he/she is still at large. Arrest warrants are not only used to apprehend perpetrators but also so that law enforcement agencies would be able to talk with witnesses to the crime. Information obtained from the warrants is then filed in the arrest reports. Alpine County arrest records are available from the Alpine Sheriff Office and one can call or visit the Sheriff to request for such information.
Another way to check for arrest records or to determine if the person is wanted by the law or is a registered offender is by going through the online website of the Sheriff Office which maintains an Offender Watch database where registered offenders are monitored by the law enforcers. Here, citizens as well as those interested in doing some research could find details about the offender’s activities as well as their current whereabouts in the county.
