Hunting down arrest records and warrants for many of Texas’s counties is easy, but for even more Texan counties, finding these records is challenging. This is often due to inadequate websites on behalf of the various sheriff’s departments in the state. Unfortunately, this is the case with the Hemphill County Sheriffs Office, which does not even have a website at the time of writing.
Because of this, you will need to contact the Sheriff of Hemphill County directly to inquire about certain kinds of records, namely, arrest warrant information. You can visit the main office of the sheriff at 400 Main St., Canadian, Texas 79014. Because of the potentially sensitive nature of arrest warrants, many of the offices throughout Texas will require that you request this information in person, making things problematic if you’re doing an arrest warrant check for yourself. Due to this concern, come prepared to surrender yourself potentially. We highly advise speaking with a defense attorney before proceeding.
Thankfully, getting arrest record information for Hemphill County, Texas, is a much easier and more straightforward matter. There are a pair of websites that we have found tremendously useful to this end, and both are provided directly by the government of Texas’s sovereign state. The first is the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, which hosts a tool that can currently display all prisoners in Texan prisons. You can find this tool at https://offender.tdcj.texas.gov/OffenderSearch/index.jsp. The second tool, provided by the Texas Department of Public Health, can fetch for you the full criminal history of any individual you are interested in. You can see this tool at https://records.txdps.state.tx.us/DpsWebsite/CriminalHistory/.
