Details pertaining to Minnehaha arrest warrants are available with both the police and the judiciary. Here is what you can do to initiate a warrants search:

Use the facility offered by the Sheriff’s Office: Yes, the law enforcement agency also provides access to its warrant list online, how great is that? However, this facility isn’t available on their website. You can access it at https://www.gotwarrants.org/. The warrant search can be done by using the name of the subject as well as the name of the city.

The information offered includes the full name of the accused, date of birth, address, bond amount and type, warrant description and date of issue. The only problem is that the site offers information from multiple states, so the warrant search may not bring back details from just Minnehaha County or even the state of South Dakota.

Approach the local judiciary: Another online option for a warrant search, this one allows you to exclusively find the arrest orders in the name of a person instead of the list of active warrants for an area. This is a paid search service offered by the SD State Courts and it can be availed at https://ujslawhelp.sd.gov/recordsearch.aspx for a fee of $20 per inquiry.

The information offered will have details on not just the warrants from Minnehaha in the name of your subject but also his/her arrest records and the correctional data linked to every instance of criminal action taken against this individual.
