    Reply:

    Arrest records are generally requested from the department which created the report. The policy and method of how to obtain the reports can be viewed on their websites, depending on the individual department. For Atlanta PD, the central records unit provides a web-page with an address to its location where the reports can be picked up and contact number to get more information about report requests.

    The Georgia Superior court clerks' cooperative authority's website provides the general public with a free search. The lookup is based on a name search. The search includes separate instructions regarding how to enter individuals' name, which means the search is not always an individual, as opposed to an entity. Searching the owners' names can help with a more comprehensive search. You can also conduct a business entity search through the Office of the Georgia Secretary of State, corporation division and see the listed officers' names, which is also an open public search.

    You can look up the arrests as they come out and go back in time as much as possible. Old publications also have arrests in them.

    The case may still be available at the courthouse. You can check by going there, I'm not sure how in depth online filing searches will be. You will need to dig it up like an investigator, if there's no filing at the courthouse, you can request arrest report directly from the police department, considering you know which department made the arrest.

    Reply:

    Through searching courts, these (Warrant Supeona Etc) are generally issued by judges. There are certain police departments which will show warrants on one of their webpages, but they tend to be issued by the judges. These records are mostly on the county level, since most criminal cases arise from county court. Georgia's state website has a page titled "Learning about Warrants", it says what you can do and your right when it comes to requesting warrant information.
