Launching an arrest warrant search in Brown County, NE, is a simple process that involves either writing to a state agency or contacting them in person for the information. Because the police, the magistrate’s court, and the office of the clerk of court all work out of the same location, conducting the investigation gets easier and less time-consuming.

The law enforcement agency will have information even on the most recent arrests, including detentions that were effected without Brown County active warrants. In fact, you could easily find the names of those individuals who have been taken into custody no more than 24 hours ago through the sheriff’s department. These people will typically be held in the county jail, which is also run by the law enforcement agency.

You can also find out about Brown County outstanding warrants and arrest records through the office of the clerk of court. This agency keeps all judicial records, including court files linked to criminal matters.

Of course, information on arrest warrants from Brown County can also be found with the magistrate’s office. This is the branch of the judiciary that actually issues all legal orders, be they for the arrest of an individual or for searching a property or confiscating items.

The magistrate’s office will also be able to tell you if a bench warrant was issued against the subject in connection with a civil or family dispute. These agencies, including the tribunals, the police, and the county clerk’s department, can be contacted at 142 W 4th St, Ainsworth, Nebraska 69210.
