Getting Warrant Information


There is no law saying that this information cannot be released.  This was a decision made by the current administration.  We, at this publication, feel that this decision is a disservice to the citizens of Bexar County.  It discounts all the people who are willing to turn themselves in.  Many people prefer the ability to control the situation rather than getting caught out on the street with their children in the car.  In the second case the car will be towed and if no one is available to come get them, your children will be taken to CPS.  And in exchange for what?  How many people who don’t want to be caught are going to go to the jail and say, “Hey, do I have a warrant”? 

The Bexar County Jail will release warrant information to anyone as long as the warrant is still active.  They will not give you information on warrants that have already been cleared.  Now the normal, logical person would think you should call Warrants to get warrant information but remember, this is the Bexar County Jail we are talking about. If you want warrant information you will have to call Central Records (210-335-6201).  You will need to have either a sid number or a name and date of birth for them to be able to look up the information.  They are available by phone 24/7.

    It’s probably something to it…but I called to see if I had a warrant because I was just going to be dropped off and turn myself in…rather than drive down there, get arrested, get my car towed..only to get back out…compiling a situation….smh…oh well, they wil make money off of both I guess…

    Andy – We think it’s ignorant not to give out warrant information over the phone so people can get things taken care of in the way you intended to do it. Unfortunately the jail under Sheriff Pamerleau has become extremely unfriendly to those trying to do what they can to get their situation taken care of.

    Kali – That’s between you and the bond company. The county does not issue warrants out for bond co-signers. The bonds company will probably keep your money.

    Does anyone know the amount of time it usually takes for an inmate to get transferred from Bexar county to Atascosa county?

    If I didn’t pay a parking ticket, didn’t go to court and my csr got towed will I have a Warrent for my arrest? Can I just go in and pay my ticket?

  • admin  On October 18, 2014 at 12:42 am

    Nikki – Call whatever agency you got the tickets with. Speak to their department that handles tickets to set up a way to handle it. They would rather have the money than arrest you but if you just go without setting something up first they might arrest you.

    Central Records just told me they don’t give out warrant information anymore…

  • admin  On November 7, 2014 at 11:15 am

    Mlp – That is correct. Sheriff Pamerleau’s administration has stopped giving that information. We consider this to be a great disservice to the community. That information is not required to be confidential. We hope everyone remembers this come next election.

    How can check see if I gt warrants

  • admin  On November 12, 2014 at 3:32 am

    Henry – The current sheriff has stopped the release of warrant information. We feel this is a disservice to the community but the only way that can be fixed is at the ballot box. For now you will need to call a bonds company to have them check for you.

    How do I find out if I have an active warrant online?

  • admin  On January 21, 2015 at 2:01 am

    Hate – You don’t. Warrant information is public information and was always given out but under Sheriff Pamerleau that has changed. We mentioned several times that we feel she is doing an injustice to the citizens of Bexar County. All we can say is remember this at election time.

    My boyfriendhas beenarrested for several traffic warrants-from Bexar Co.- by Prct.4 and is being taken to Bexar Co. Jail. He is indigent due to being unemployed,since he could not get a job without a current and valid I.D. Will the Court make him sit the tickets out because he is unemployed or put him on a payment plan that he won’t be able to pay without a valid I.D. and job? If they give him a payment plan, can he then go get his I.D. renewed so he can get a job?
    Thank you,

  • admin  On June 20, 2015 at 6:47 pm

    Tina – We wish we could answer this for you but we have no idea what the judge will decide to do. He needs an attorney.

  • shawntel  On June 23, 2015 at 4:34 pm

    My husband was on plan and they gave him six months to pay the ticket,which he went in feb so he should have until aug to pay,but they send him a letter and said he had until june 16 to complete the court recommended but he dont have a id to go to / work so he can only pay wat he can pay

  • lee  On September 22, 2015 at 7:01 pm

    Where can I check to see if I have any warrants I need to renew my license last time I went in I got arrested for somebody else’s warrant

  • Tammy  On October 1, 2015 at 4:26 pm

    Well I called that number and I was told to contact an attorney or a bondsman to find out if there was a warrant. Why would they even give me 5he time of day I have paid them nothing. Can anyone just give me the information. It’s a simple question. YES or NO

  • admin  On October 11, 2015 at 7:51 pm

    Tammy – Previous administrations have released this information. It is not confidential. The current sheriff chose not to release it. We consider it a disservice to the public.

  • admin  On October 11, 2015 at 8:12 pm

    Lee – Sorry but the current sheriff is not releasing that information. It can be released to the public and was done so by past administrations but she chose not to. We feel it is a disservice to the general public and hurts people in all kinds of circumstances. For instance, yours.
