Although it remains your sole decision to search the arrest records, or even the arrest warrants, of persons within Coleman County, some ways are better than others. In this article, we will recommend the ways which we consider to be the best.
The first thing we recommend doing is to contact the sheriff of Coleman County. Although the sheriff may not always be willing to divulge all of the information you’re after, they will have at least access to all of it. What’s more, they should be able to tell you at least what you need to do to obtain it.
You can reach Sheriff Wade Turner of Coleman County at 100 W Liveoak Street, Suite 101, in Coleman, Texas. Alternatively, he can be reached by fax at 325-652-3509. In case this contact information does not work when you are reading this article, you can see their updated webpage at http://www.co.coleman.tx.us/default.aspx?Coleman_County/Sheriff.
The second resource that we advise people to utilize is that of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. This group has on record criminal information from every county in Texas, which includes Coleman County. The main web page for this organization is http://www.tdcj.state.tx.us/. The best thing about utilizing the resources here is that they stem directly from official resources, and what records they can provide should come entirely free of charge.
