In Pike County, PA, the magistrate’s court is the only authorized entity to issue arrest warrants. However, it does not have the jurisdiction to release an order for detention in a felony case unless the police apply for such a decree. So, when looking for arrest records, start at the magistrate’s office.
The court can be reached by finding your way to 410 Broad St, Milford, PA 18337. You can also contact the judicial agency by calling on 570-296-3556, but they will not respond to inquiries for active arrest warrants over the phone.
Alternatively, you could also enlist the help of the county clerk’s staff. They work out of the court clerk’s head office at 412 Broad Street, Milford, Pennsylvania 18337. The agency can also be contacted over the phone at 717-296-7231, but the same rules apply to disseminate outstanding warrant details.
A visit to Pike’s justice center will give you access to the public service terminals from where you can browse through the court dockets and gather more information in a civil or criminal case presented before the courts in the county.
Finally, the sheriff’s office is another government agency that can help you with a warrant search. They are located at 500 Broad Street, Milford, Pennsylvania 18337. Get in touch with a representative of the department at 570-296-6459.
