It is not unusual for one to request an arrest record or report especially if they are involved in the incident. In most cases, the records are readily available from the arresting agency that made the arrest although some reports may be considered as confidential, and then one has to make use of other ways to be able to obtain these records. With that said, one has to visit these government agencies to make their request. Arrest records contain brief summary that were written down during an incident and includes not only what happened, but it also includes information on the person arrested as well as information on the victims. Arrest records are normally published in the law enforcement agency’s website and can normally be found in the police logs or booking logs. Some reports may be found in the press release or media section of the website as well.
