    The link to look up warrants (from state courts) is above. Click on the link "Alaska Warrant Records" above under the public records directory. You will be able to access a list of active warrants issued by the state's courts in relation to Alaska state troopers cases. For city or borough warrants, you will need to check that area's law enforcement department, such as the Juneau Police Department for example, they provide their own weekly updated warrant list.

  • Q: Where and how can I get the most complete background check in Alaska?
    By mario

    Alaska's public records statutes are very similar to the ones of other states. Unfortunately so are the challenges faced by residents of other states. Certain records, due to their popularity and high volume of request are simple and easy to locate, however, other records can be difficult to find and not as apparent as the more frequently requested. For a more complete background history of an individual, criminal records may not suffice. Assets such as property or real estate data are sought for legal and personal reasons. A link accessing the recorder's offices throughout the state of Alaska can direct users to online property data as well as other recorded documents. The property search is free and online for public use.

    There are important records that are free while left out from an average background searches. Many detention centers, for example, have inmate lists of offenders that were released many years ago. The DOC’s searches are freely open to the public. First, focus on your own search by seeking records which are the most important to you. If you are looking for assets, business ownerships and real property, you can find it on your own by requesting copies of or looking up deeds, conducting a search of the secretary of state’s database which is free and more. If the aim of your search is to look for lawsuits, you can look up court records online, including bankruptcy records. That is the purpose behind public record directories where a list of these types of databases are linked to.
