Pursuant to the laws of Washington County, an arrest warrant search can be done through more than one justice agency. Depending on the capacity in which you seek this information, you can avail the services of a UT government agency in the matter or approach a private entity that sells arrest records and data on warrants through its website.
For the former, you will have to be a representative of a law enforcement agency or at least part of the state justice department in some sense. Third party inquiries about active warrants from Washington County are only entertained from establishments that offer care in any way to kids, seniors and physically or mentally challenged adults.
So, schools, hospitals, day care centers and senior care facilities are all allowed to seek information on the criminal past of a subject even if these establishments are privately owned. Similarly, agencies that operate in fiduciary funds or are associated with licensing can also conduct such searches.
Apart from this, information on outstanding warrants and arrest records can only be sought if this inquiry is personal. In other words, as an individual applicant, you can request a personal background check but you will not be offered details on arrests and crime history concerning others.
