About Arrest Records Search

What Are Arrest Records?

Arrest Records are documents that contain an individual's arrest history. They are maintained by a number of government agencies at the federal, state, and local level, including local police departments, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and courts. Arrest Records contain an individual's arrests, arrest searches, inquiries, warrants, reports, logs, and mug shots.

Arrests for felonies, misdemeanors, and both criminal and civil charges are included in the Arrest Record. They may also contain pending warrants, fines, or monetary restitution for an arrest or conviction, and charges that have been dismissed or for which the individual was acquitted. If an arrest led to a conviction, the Arrest Record may list the sentence and any incarceration. An Arrest Record will also show if an individual is on the sex offender registry.

Arrest Records contain personal information about the individual, including their full name, date of birth, and known aliases. The record also contains the individual's age at the time of the arrest. Many Arrest Records include a photograph, fingerprints, and a description of identifying marks or tattoos.

Reviewing Arrest Records is an important part of performing a background check. Most employers use background checks as part of their hiring process, and some are required by law to run a background check before hiring anyone. Landlords may also use Arrest Records to assess potential renters. Arrest records may also be used by post-secondary schools, the military, foster care services, firearms sellers, and driver's license offices to screen criminal history.

Arrest Records are part of a broader criminal record, which includes an individual's entire criminal history, including arrests, charges, convictions, and incarcerations. These records are typically kept by courts, police departments, clerk's offices, and certain federal agencies.
