Ask Questions, About Missouri

  • How do I obtain the original police reports (not the discovery) from the original day of arrest in 2015 in Missouri, as these documents were not turned over to my attorney?
    Arrest or incident reports can be requested from the law enforcement agency which created the report. Individual departments maintain websites with information as to where and how to request various types of official police reports. When requesting from the Missouri highway patrol, their site offers a public request form that can be submitted online. (Staff)
  • How to find out if someone has a warrant in Missouri?
    To look for a warrant, you need to do some searching on your own unless you hire someone else, or entity to do the search for you. Warrants can be searched throughout the state by checking with the law enforcement agency of that area, such as the sheriff for the county and police for municipalities. There are federal warrants, however, not as common. It depends greatly where the warrant was issued from, some departments have the data online and others don't, so it's hard to say precisely how. You can search questions and answers at the county level. When you enter "Missouri warrant search", you will see a list of sheriffs department which provide online warrant lists. All may not be listed initially, so you may need to look by individual county name. Warrants are issued by judges/courts, law enforcement gets them after to serve them to the individual. (Staff)

    You can search cases freely by date or party name. Click on this link that will go to the state's main court web page, where you will see "Search for a Case Find public case information".

  • How to get police reports and information from a murder case?
    Both, police reports (other than few exceptions) and criminal court cases are public information. You will need to request them separately unless the case file contains a copy of the police report. Find the county court services, which include case searches. Begin with the state's court web-page and their litigant/party case search. You may need to go to the courthouse in person to view the entire case file, everything is most likely not available online. (Staff)
