Free Police Reports Online Resources

By Tony Stark

Based on government crime data for 2006, there were close to 20 million crimes committed in the US for the year. By historical trend, that number would have increased for 2007. Its also reasonable to assume that arrest numbers are not any less alarming, give and take those crimes for which arrests were not made and those arrests which didnt lead to any incrimination.

An arrest can be seen as serving basically two purposes. It stops a perceived violation of the law on the spot. It also holds the arrestee in custody for due judicial proceeding and disposition. While doing so, it not only prevents further extent of the offense but also presumably isolates the bad apple from its barrel. This rationale is not Rocket Science and is in practice across all civilized societies, with the task most commonly charged to the Police.

It is a standard procedure for the Police to document all their activities through Police Reports. In the case of Arrests, the associated reports will be entered into the subjects Police Arrest Records. Where a subject does not have any Police Arrest Records, one will be started. A distinctive feature of arrest records is that they stand whether or not there is resultant incarceration.

Free Police Records is an official reflection of someones civil character and background. The best Free Police Records to have is no record. However, if there had been any, a search will uncover complete details of the arrestees personal particulars and the surrounding information to the arrest. Multiple arrests are not uncommon and they will all show up if they happened within the jurisdiction for which the search was conducted.

Being public records, anybody has the right to retrieve anyones Public Police Records as long as procedures are followed. That being said, it must be noted that restriction on their accessibility and use may be applied where public interest may be compromised or when it concerns security, social stability or juveniles. Generally, they can be requested directly from the local Police Department if the exact residence of the subject is known. Otherwise, they would have to be searched at the responsible government agency.

The Police Force comes under state jurisdiction and Free Police Reports are structured in accordance with that. As such, there are variations in regard to the treatment of Free Police Records from state to state. On top of that, the databases of the respective state-level repositories are not linked. That means a no-record-found covers only the state for which the search is conducted. It is reasonable to speculate that the FBI has a federal Police Arrest Record database but it is not likely to be publicly accessible in view of security reasons.

Free Police Reports can also be purchased from fee-based record providers. Because of the immense competition, the top ones are very professional with excellent value-for-money. In addition to public sources, they also tap into private and proprietary databases. Reports are typically spoon-fed to you within minutes, free of the risk of legality issues, waiting time and other hassles at all.
