How to see your arrest record, or someone else’s arrest record!

If you’ve been arrested recently, you probably want to know about your arrest record. A lot of useful information can be found within it, and can help you with any legal difficulties from your arrest.

What is an arrest record?

An arrest record is a type of public record created for anyone who’s been arrested. It contains information regarding every time police have arrested you. This information includes:

  • Identifying information, such as your name, age, race, and gender
  • Mugshots taken
  • Reason for arrest(s)
  • Location and time of arrest
  • Arresting officer(s)

As arrest records are public record, anyone can legally access them. While there are laws regulating the use of the information within an arrest record, many people ignore them, and do as they please. As a result, it’s incredibly important for you to know what information is contained within your arrest record, so you can use it to catch people using it illegally.
