Conducting an arrest warrant search in Wadena County, MN, is a cakewalk compared to other geographical divisions of MN due to the helpful stance assumed by the local sheriff’s office. While other law enforcement agencies seem to shy away from the idea of furnishing details on outstanding warrants online, the police of Wadena have no problems in providing these details through their website.

On the official web page of the agency, you can find details on arrests made recently at http://www.co.wadena.mn.us/204/In-Custody-List and an extensive list of arrest warrants at http://www.co.wadena.mn.us/205/Warrant-List. Although you can find out about all outstanding warrants from Wadena County through this URL, you will not be told about the arrest records in the name of the people on the list.

For this, you will need to contact the law enforcement agency in person or through the mail. It is also possible to seek information on active warrants and arrests through the offices of the judiciary as well. Going to the magistrate’s office will help you get details on bench warrants and criminal summons, along with regular detention directives released against the subject.

Similarly, the county clerk’s office that is in possession of the court dockets database will be able to find details from civil and criminal tribunals for you. You will be required to show up at the agency office of your choosing in person and fill out a formal application for the inquiry. A small fee will also be charged. However, the clerk of the court’s office allows people to access their court dockets repository free of charge through the public service terminals at the justice center. To visit these agencies, go to:
