Like most other police departments of WY, the local sheriff’s office does not offer the prospect of conducting online arrest warrant searches. In Niobrara County; however, it is possible to find some details on criminal history through the website of the sheriff’s department. For instance, a list of the most wanted criminals of the area has been put up on the site.
Although not a substitute for a traditional inquiry on active warrants from Niobrara County and detentions that have been effected by the cops, the list does serve as a go to point for finding the more dangerous criminal elements of the area. For instance, if the subject was ever involved in a serious criminal infraction such as a felony or a Class A or B misdemeanor, and he did not face arrests for his misdoings, he is likely to have an outstanding warrant against him in this list available at http://www.niobraracountysheriff.org/.
However, if the only legal infraction to this person’s credit is a minor civil or traffic violation, you will not find out about him unless you approach the police in person for an inquiry on the arrest records from Niobrara County and any active warrants to his name. Another way to conduct such an inquiry is to go to the office of the county clerk or the magistrate.
The former is known to keep the database of the court dockets. This is the repository that contains information not just on the arrest warrants issued in Niobrara County but also the case dispositions and sentencing related details. To contact the state agencies mentioned here, you can go to:
