What is an Arrest Record?

Top Reasons People in the U.S. are Arrested - How To Find Arrest Records?

An arrest record is a listing of someone’s arrest history. Whenever someone commits a crime or is accused of committing a crime, law enforcement arrests them. Local, state, or federal police take the person into custody, process them through booking, and hold them in jail until their initial hearing with the judge. The judge may or may not offer the offender bail. An arrest record is sometimes referred to as a RAP sheet. Arrest records often contain less detail than the related court records for criminal cases. Arrest information includes a lot of details. Some of the information contained in arrest reports may include the following:

Arrest Warrants

Arrest Warrants

An arrest warrant is a document that authorizes police to arrest someone that they suspect has committed a crime. Local law enforcement must obtain an arrest warrant from a neutral judge before arresting someone unless they witness the crime as it happens. The arrest warrant will have the person’s name, the crime they are accused of, along with any restrictions. For example, the judge may stipulate that police can only arrest the person at a specific time of day. An arrest warrant may also include a bail amount that the suspect will have to pay if they don’t want to wait in jail for their trial. Police obtain arrest warrants by filing an affidavit with the judge stating their probable cause. There are other types of warrants that authorize an arrest. Alias and bench warrants can be issued when you fail to appear in court. A civil capias warrant is issued for arresting someone to make sure they appear in court for a hearing.

Booking Information

Booking Information

When the police arrest someone, they take them into custody and perform a booking process. During booking, the police officer collects general information about the subject, including their name, address, phone number, and a physical description. Police may also fingerprint the suspect and take mugshots. Law enforcement will also do a background search on the offender and ask questions about the crime committed. Booking records may include details about bail, bond, incarcerations, outstanding warrants, the booking date, and other information.

Bail Bonds

Bail Bonds

If police release a suspect on bail or bond, it will show up in arrest records. Bail bonds are surety bonds promising that the suspect will show up in court on their trial date. Accused suspects and families secure these bail bonds through bond companies. The bail bondsman will post the bail for the offender so they can get out of jail. If the suspect shows up in court, the court will refund the bail bond company the bail money. However, the suspect will have to pay a fee for this service. Public records often include bail bond details.

Criminal Charges

Criminal Charges

After law enforcement arrests someone, they will formally charge them with an offense. These criminal charges become the person’s RAP sheet. Their criminal history will follow them through the justice system. Public records contain a lot of information about criminal charges, arrests, warrants, and entire criminal histories. InfoTracer allows a nationwide criminal records search. Coverage may vary according to state laws and records availability.

Mugshots

Mugshots

Mugshots are photographs that police or other law enforcement agents take of suspects during the booking process. These mugshots are used to identify criminals and eliminate suspects. Although each law enforcement agency may have its own format, the typical mugshot consists of a front and side picture against a dark background. The arrestee holds a card with their name and other information on it. Mugshots are public records in many states and may be included in an InfoTracer’s search.
