What Does a Police Report Include?

Get to know the information held about someone by the local police force systems with a simple search by name. If the data you’re looking for is publicly available, you could learn more about their arrest records, booking details, criminal and civil driving violations.

Arrest Details

For individuals who had been arrested or booked at a county jail, you can find out more about the case, the arrest date, warrants, booking number, booked time, booking status, location, gender, case number, charge, nature of the offense, charge status, and bond amount (where available).

Driving Violations

The driving criminal offenses someone committed could also come up, with criminal driving offenses, driving under the influence (DUI/OUI/DWI arrests), speeding, reckless driving, hit and run, aggressive driving, citations, driving without insurance, and driving without a valid license.


Felonies are crimes that are punishable by more than one year in prison. You could find a person’s extremely serious charges, such as aggravated assault and/or battery, murder, manslaughter, tax evasion, child abuse, grand theft, sexual assault, probation and/or parole violations.


Misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, referring to crimes punished with less than one year in jail. Find out if someone was charged with domestic abuse, petty theft, shoplifting, burglary, restraining order violation, hiding a fugitive, vandalism, making a false report, discharging a firearm within a city, or trespassing.

What are Police Records?

Police records are documented registers containing a person's arrest history and their contacts with criminal justice. They differ from the physical file of a potentially illegal incident (known as a crime report or police report). Regarding the distinction between arrest records, criminal records, and police records, it’s important to know that an arrest doesn't imply conviction or guilt. Someone can be arrested and then proven not guilty in a court of law.

In the colonial period, policing was initially provided by local officials (militias and elected sheriffs). In 1626 the New York Sheriff's Office was founded. 160 years later, a Guard and Watch division in Charleston adopted the sole responsibility of policing, with a separate chain of command - involving uniforms and salaries - focused on preventing crime and being authorized to use force. In the American Old West, laws were enforced by local rangers, constables, sheriffs, and federal marshals. Town marshals only carried out arrests for petty crimes, served warrants, or maintained jails.

Now police officers arrest people and investigate misconduct, without having the responsibility to charge people. Prosecutors (for instance a district attorney’s office) are those who formally file charges and by doing so, a new court case is opened.

Police records are not included in the court system, and many documents like crime/incident reports or arrest reports held at police departments/police headquarters are not recognized as being open for public inspection as court records are.

  • Arrest or Search Warrants
  • Arresting Officer
  • Arresting Agency
  • Mugshots
  • Prison Records
  • Charges
  • Charge Category
  • Case Number
  • Court Name
  • Case Type

In some cases they could be traced in relation to other public records. Searching for police records online is the quickest way to access additional information on someone's arrest or search warrants, arresting officer, arresting agency, mugshots, prison records, charges, charge category, case number, court name, case type, and more data coverage depending on the police department and sheriff county offices.
