Getting Warrant Information

UPDATE:  SHERIFF PAMERLEAU’S ADMINISTRATION HAS CHANGED THE POLICY REGARDING WARRANTS.  THEY ARE NO LONGER ALLOWING WARRANT INFORMATION TO BE GIVEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.

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.

    Adrian – As far as the bondsman, yes, they can get the information and get it all handled in advance so you can turn yourself in on your day off and not miss work. As far as the Sheriff is concerned, we are deeply disappointed with the extent to which she has made things harder for the family and friends of incarcerated individuals and for the general public. We recommend you remember the problems this administration caused when the 2014 elections come around.

    James – Answers to your questions would take us into the realm of giving legal advice, which we cannot do. We highly recommend that you contact an attorney.

    AB89 – It would help to know what the charge is. If it was just a ticket that you had to pay a fine on then you would need to contact the arresting agency to find out why there is still a warrant out on you. It it was something higher than a ticket then the penalty is more than just a fine.

    How do they handle Hot checks if you get a warrant in mail? Can you make arrangements?

  • admin  On May 14, 2014 at 4:25 am

    Ashley – Call the District Attorney’s office and ask for the Hot Check section. They will be able to help you.

    I used to live in San Antonio for 17 yrs. I moved to another city and was looking for work and they did a background check on me and I was told I had a warrant “Theft by Check” issued on me by Bexar county
    how can I clear this up and have it taken off my record?
    I didn’t even know I had a returned check.
    But this has cost me an very important job and I really need to get this off my record. Please advise how I can get this removed from my personal records.

    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.
