Hunting for official records, almost no matter what kind, can be particularly difficult to do in Texas. Due to a high volume of illicit and insufficient websites and resources, finding things like arrest records and warrants for Jackson County can be a time-consuming and maddening waste of time. Because of this, we recommend starting and ending with official resources provided by the state or the county.
The best place to start hunting down arrest warrant information for Jackson County, Texas, is the Sheriff of Jackson County. You should visit the sheriff in person at 115 W. Main, in Room 104 in Edna, Texas 77967. You can also contact the sheriff’s office by email at a.louderback et co.jackson.tx.us.
If you’re instead searching for arrest record information, then you’ll want to consult the database of current prison inmates provided by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. You can find the homepage of the TDCJ at http://www.tdcj.state.tx.us/. You can access their statewide prisoner inmate database at https://offender.tdcj.texas.gov/OffenderSearch/index.jsp.
Another resource many of our readers have found useful is provided by the Texas Department of Public Safety. This tool allows you to search for records of criminal history by the name of an individual. If you’re willing to pay a small fee, you can see all of the crimes that they have ever committed, which will by proxy grant you their arrest records. You can find this tool at https://records.txdps.state.tx.us/DpsWebsite/CriminalHistory/.
