Along with dealing with the close to seventy yearly crimes reported to them, the Norman County Sheriff has many other duties. Their motto is “To Keep and Preserve the Peace of the County.” The sheriff has a website, at http://www.co.norman.mn.us/index.asp?SEC=94805E05-6E08-425B-8AD8-FFC8DCFBAD94&DE=47A4FB35-0234-4417-8B57-239D1AC605AB&Type=B_BASIC. The sheriff’s telephone number is 218. 784. 7114. The mailing address for the Norman County sheriff is 15 2nd Avenue East, Ada, MN56510. While there is not much to guide you in an arrest warrant search on the Norman County sheriff’s website, there is a section dealing with common questions, which directs inquiries about outstanding warrants to the Norman County Court Administration Office.
The court administration office’s hours are 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM, and they are located at 16 Third Ave. East, Ada, MN, 56510. The court administrator also has a webpage detailing the office’s responsibilities. The office is charged with organizing and maintaining all of the county’s court case records, including criminal court dockets for the Norman County courts, which make up the Ninth Minnesota Judicial District. Court dockets are a listing of all the proceedings in a case and may reference different events about arrest warrants in Norman County. The court administration website references the Minnesota State Courts System Website, http://mn.gov/portal/government/state/courts/ as a useful resource.
At http://www.mncourts.gov/PublicAccess, users may access court case records, including those for the district courts. The information may or may not pertain to Norman County warrants and arrests. Public access to the service is only available during certain hours. The Minnesota Judicial Branch’s “MPA Remote” (Minnesota Trial Court Public Access Remote view) service is the version of the Minnesota Court Information System (MNCIS) available to the public. MNCIS has data on judgments, orders, and notices issued by courts, some of which may cover Norman County active warrants and arrests.
