The fact that several government agencies keep information on Jay County arrest warrants should tell you how important these judicial orders are. Unlike bench warrants and other legal instruments that have a fixed validity period, an active warrant once issued will remain in effect until it is executed, and till such time records pertaining to the order have to be held somewhere.

Three agencies have been chosen for the task of keeping arrest records from Jay and information on all warrant issues in the county. These include:

  • The County Clerk's office: 120 N Court St # 2, Portland, Indiana 47371
  • The Police: 224 W Water St, Portland, Indiana 47371
  • The Magistrate's court: 120 N Court St, Portland, IN 47371

While none of these agencies allow people to do an online warrant search, you can find a list of the most wanted on the sheriff's website at http://jaycountysheriff.org/Warrants.html. The judicial agencies mentioned above can also help you with civil records. For instance, the county clerk's department has access to the court dockets maintained for criminal as well as civil tribunals.

So, you can get the dirt on just about any legal matter that the subject is involved in including cases being heard by the family courts through this state agency.
