While the sheriff’s Colbert County department, AL, does not offer an online recourse for a warrant search, you can visit them in person to access arrest records. An active arrest warrant issued by a criminal court in the county is a judicial order for detention passed on to the police for execution.
So, the sheriff’s office and the local court, and the county clerk have all the information on all outstanding arrest warrants. To get this information from the local law enforcement agency’s office, you will need to visit them in person with a photo ID and a formal request that offers details on the inquiry subject.
To file the “background information” form with the sheriff’s department, call on them at 201 N Main St, Tuscumbia, Alabama 35674.
