The list of detention orders posted on the sheriff’s website has made it simpler for people to conduct arrest warrant searches in La Crosse County, WI. However, it should be noted here that the accumulation of details on active warrants is limited to the alleged offender’s name and the charges under which the active warrant was sought.
So, if your subject has served time in the past or was involved in a case that the courts dismissed or if he was acquitted, you will not find out about these matters from the warrant list. In fact, you will find no mention of arrest warrants that have already been served.
For this data, you will have to initiate a formal inquiry into the arrest records and outstanding warrants from La Crosse County through a state department or a private entity. To access the list of active warrants offered by the office of the sheriff, go to http://www.co.la-crosse.wi.us/Sheriff/WarrantList/.
