The Sheriff’s Office is tasked to preserve peace and order in the county as well as provide the public information such as arrest reports and other records for the public’s safety. The Office makes available an online booking page which helps the public to search the Mendocino county arrest records for inmates booked in the facility. Researchers should input the inmate’s name, booking number and booking date to be able to make a search. The online query will provide the information as timely as possible although it is still best to contact the office to verify if the arrest or any other facts are real and accurate.
An arrest usually does not mean that a case was filed or the inmate was convicted of the charges brought against them. For criminal records, one may contact the correctional facility to request for convicted inmate reports. They may also visit the Superior Court of California Mendocino County Criminal Division to request for public records or criminal records.
