In Genesee County, Michigan, state officials still have not woken up to the benefits of online record keeping. While the Freedom of Information law enacted in the state allows citizens to seek information on active arrest warrants and arrest records in general from justice agencies, this information is seldom put up over the internet.
So, Genesee's "in-person" only approach does not come as a surprise. However, it sure is cumbersome to drive to every agency office in search of data on outstanding warrants.Some of the state run entities that you must consider for your warrant search include:
The sheriff's office: This one probably popped in your head without too much pondering; after all, who can let you know more about the nefarious activity in an area than the police? Also, it is worth considering that while the magistrate of Genesee County issues the warrant, it is the sheriff's deputies who serve it. So, if you are looking for in depth criminal background data, there simply is no better place to go to than 1002 S Saginaw St, Flint, Michigan 48502.
County clerks: This is another option for people who want information on arrest warrants and would not mind it to be served with a generous measure of details on civil litigations included. The clerk of court prepares and maintains official summaries for Genesee court proceedings called court dockets. To access them, go to 1101 Beach Street, Flint, Michigan 48503
Finally, do not forget the magistrate's court; after all, this is the agency that issues all those arrest orders. They are located at 900 S Saginaw St, Flint, MI 48502, and a representative of the judge will be happy to help you out with the data you need.
Genesee County, MI witnesses no less than 20,000 crimes every year of which more than 15% are violent in nature. On an average, a crime occurs in the area every half an hour, which puts the daily incident rate at just about 24 cases.
