Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office -- Records and Warrants

Booking

The Oklahoma County Records Division is responsible for maintaining the records of every person who has been arrested or housed at the Oklahoma County Detention Center. On a monthly average 3,000 inmates are processed into the jail, and every month new booking information is required on all of those inmates to place in their permanent file.

In 2003 Sheriff Whetsel implemented a new office within the Records Department; titled the Scanning Section. The Scanning Section is responsible for digitally scanning all of the records within the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office. For the past several years dedicated scanning staff has been electronically storing all documents; some of which date back to the early 1900’s. As a result of scanning efforts the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office now has thousands of permanent records available at the push of a button.

Booking

The Records Division is also responsible for assisting the public with background checks, fingerprinting, firearms applications, and incident reports. In 2006 the Records Division started collecting DNA samples from parolees.

The Warrant Division is responsible for maintaining over 45,000 warrants. Each day warrants are entered into our system, served to suspects, and sometimes recalled. The Warrant Division is open 24 hours each day and receives hundreds of phone calls each day to verify the validity of warrants. This department is also responsible for entering people into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), and for placing holds on defendants who are arrested in other counties, states, and countries.

Booking

Both Records and Warrants assist other law enforcement agencies with information, photos, and warrants.
