To get answers when doing an arrest warrant search for Linn County, it would make the most sense to start at the county level. However, in some cases, especially if dealing with the type of offense that would warrant incarceration in a state prison facility, going to the state level may prove as useful, if not more so.
In Linn County, KS, in terms of crimes reported to the authorities per annum, there is around 1 homicide, close to 20 rapes, and 85 or more car thefts. However, the total number of reported crimes per year is almost 150; the balance of crimes is usually thefts.
The Linn County website is http://www.linncountyks.com/. It contains information on various parts of the county government. However, in terms of how to go about an active warrant search or see if arrest warrants are no longer outstanding, there isn’t much there. On the “Elected Officials” page, there is a link to the sheriff’s office, which would be a logical first step in an outstanding warrant search. Unfortunately, the sheriff’s page has little more on it than the sheriff’s contact information:107 South 4th Street PO Box 350, Mound City, KS 66056.
There is one good arrest records and warrants lead on the Linn County site, and that is a link to the Kansas judiciary site https://www.justice.gov/jmd/ls/kansas. Linn County is the 6th judicial district in Kansas. There is a link to the KBI Kansas Criminal History Record Check (http://www.kansas.gov/kbi/criminalhistory/) on the judiciary site. The KBI is the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. On their site, you can locate data on how to do criminal history record checks, which will likely provide information on arrest records and warrants and answers to common questions.
So, even if looking to statewide resources for Linn County outstanding warrants and arrests may seem like going too far, the state permits Kansas criminal history records to be disclosed to the general public. However, there is a charge for doing a search, $20.00, and using the system requires creating an account.
