About Police Records Search

What are Police Records?

Police Records are documents created by police departments that document the details of crimes, arrests, and the criminal activities of particular individuals. The police maintain detailed records on arrests, investigations, and the actions of police officers. Police Records can be an important source of information about a person's criminal history.

Police Records include a number of different documents, such as police reports, arrest logs, and crime reports. They also include records related to detention, such as mug shots, booking reports, and intake and visitor logs for police stations and jails. In addition, police departments produce blotters, descriptions of suspected or charged criminals, and investigation reports. Police Records also include search warrants and arrest warrants, which must be signed by a judge.

Searching for Police Records is an important part of performing a background check. Police Records contain information on an individual's arrests, detentions, and convictions. Background checks can provide employers and the public with information on the criminal history of potential employees or neighbors. For example, a Police Record can show if someone is a convicted sex offender or committed other serious felonies. Police Records may also be used for tenant checks, childcare provider checks, or contractor background searches.

Police Records also include information about traffic violations, including crash reports, DUI/DWI interventions, and other traffic accidents that required police intervention. These Police Reports may be required to reinstate a driver's license or for insurance purposes following an accident. They can also be used to establish someone's driving history for employment or volunteer purposes.

Some Police Records may not be available to the public in order to protect the privacy of witnesses, victims, or suspects. Sensitive information that may affect the course of ongoing criminal investigations is also kept private. Other types of Police Records may be available in abbreviated form, for example in daily arrest logs or police blotters, which organize police notes and logs into a larger database that is available to the public.
