Home to as many as 16,000 people as of the 2008 census estimates (which you can find at https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/popest.html ), Lee County has a remarkably low prisoner population for a county of its size. In fact, as of the end of 2010, only 98 persons were serving time in Lee County’s jails.
However, because Lee County is still a relatively small county, it does not have a website from which you can access criminal, arrest, and warrant records. This means that if you’re searching for arrest warrant information for the county, you will need to directly contact the sheriff. Often, sheriff’s offices will require you to make arrest warrant inquiries in person.
If you would instead just perform a complete criminal background check, you may do so at https://records.txdps.state.tx.us/DpsWebsite/CriminalHistory/. You should be aware that this search will require you to create an account with the Texas Department of Public Safety and that some types of inquiries will incur a small fee.
If you would like to search instead of a database of all of the currently in prison in Texas, you may do so here: https://offender.tdcj.texas.gov/OffenderSearch/index.jsp. Provided by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, this offender information search can get you the arrest record information of those in prison, but not those who have been released.
