Each Monday, The Eagle highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives. For recent You Oughta Know columns, go to www.kansas.com/oughta.
The record: Active warrants for Sedgwick County residents held by the Sheriff's Office.
Why you'd want them: To see if someone you know has warrants out for their arrest.
Where you get the records: From www.sedgwickcounty.org/sheriff /. From the online menu on the right, click on the "active warrants search" link.
How much it will cost: The information is free.
