Initiating an arrest warrant search in Burt County is considered by many to be a tedious and time consuming task. Although it is true that you will need to drive down to a state agency to seek information on arrest records and active warrants or at least connect with them through mail, you also have other options. The sheriff’s office and that of the magistrate will only respond to inquiries that are made through these two communication channels.
These agencies will ask the applicant to fill out a form that is meant to collect information on the subject as well as the individual or entity that is seeking the warrant search, including the reason for investigating the existence of arrest warrants in the name of the said person. Once the duly filled form is submitted, depending on how the inquiry has been made, the results are delivered immediately, in a few hours or in some days.
The county clerk’s department has taken a different approach to the dissemination of crime history data and to all legal information held in their court dockets database for that matter. Yes, you will still have to drive down to the address given below, but you will be allowed to look for the Burt County arrest records and outstanding warrants in the name of the subject on your own.
The court dockets database maintained by the clerk of court’s office contains information on the issue of active warrants from Burt County, arrests made under such legal provisions as well as details on civil cases. This repository can be accessed by using the public service terminals in the agency office. The state departments discussed above work out of:
- The police: 111 N 13th St, Tekamah, Nebraska 68061
- The county clerk: PO Box 87, Tekamah, Nebraska 68061
- The court of the magistrate: 111 N 13th St, Tekamah, NE 68061
Only about 45 criminal complaints are taken to the sheriff’s office of Burt County, Nebraska each year. Of these cases filed, about 10% are made against violent criminal acts and this situation may worsen in the future, given the near doubling in the rates of violent incidents.
