ABOUT OUR "ARREST REPORTS" SEARCH:
WHAT ARE "ARREST REPORTS"?
Traditionally, arrest information has not been available to those outside of law enforcement. There are a few exceptions to this, such as in Colorado where
rap sheets, which include both arrests and convictions, are available to the public.
However, for the most part, this type of information has been unavailable to anyone
outside of law enforcement.
This has recently changed. Many criminal justice agencies have a policy of publicly releasing information on arrestees at or near the time of arrest. Over time, this information has been compiled by public record companies who eventually had enough information -- millions of records -- to offer arrest reports. The data has been collected
from key jurisdictions in all fifty states and is an excellent auxillary source
of criminal record information. It is included FREE in every criminal record check run at Crime Smasher!
