The Arkansas Freedom of Information Act FOIA, was signed into law on February 14, 1967. The Arkansas FOIA is considered one of the strongest and best models for open government. The Arkansas FOIA provides the citizens of Arkansas open access to the conduct of the public's business at every level of government. There have been several amendments to the Arkansas FOIA since being signed into law and as of 2010 there are eighteen exemptions added to the original law. These exemptions were created by the Arkansas legislature and specifically protect such things as grand jury minutes, adoption records, and the identity of law enforcement officers currently working undercover, along with other protections. Arkansas was admitted to the union on June 15, 1836 and is the 25th state.

Q: Can anyone get a rap sheet?
by Public post
A: RAP sheet stands for Records of Arrest and Prosecution. It’s a record of past criminal activity and the information is available in several forms from various agencies and private entities. Each can have their own policies regarding public access. The criminal past of an individual can be found in obvious places and some that are hidden from persons not familiar with where to look. Places where you can get criminal records are court/criminal division or clerk, background checks from some local and most state law enforcement, FBI, private background check companies and more. These will generally not show arrest information lacking a conviction. However, jail lists, booking sheets, inmate look ups offer information of the recently arrested. Local police and sheriffs offer information about requesting an arrest report. Policies of their availability vary from one state and its department to another. The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is federal and each state has their own individual set of statutes pertaining to open public records. With a large majority of law enforcement agencies maintaining a website to serve its citizens, knowing where and how to request arrest information is made available. Inmates databases from certain local and state jail facilities are free and open to the public. You can get more data from court filings.

by chan
A: Arrest records can come from the police agency that responded to the incident. Depending on the department and location, this type of record can be requested directly. An incident, crash, accident report or similar documentation can also contain the information you are seeking. More information can come out from local newspapers and their archived stories. So government sources are not the only options. Although a simple online search may not reveal any good sources at first, it can result in finding the sources in which are helpful, it's just that their content does not rank high enough for you to see it. This is where an extensive search can make a difference.

Q: How are the states doing comparatively in their unemployment ranks and numbers?
by adwrks
A: Latest numbers from the bureau of labor statistics reported in its latest finding released on July 20th shows 27 states with rising unemployment, 12 states that had no change and 11 states along with the District of Columbia doing better for June 2012. Comparing to last year, 47 states and the District of Columbia are experiencing better employment numbers with 3 states experiencing a rise in their unemployment rate. The largest one month rise in employment was in California adding thirty eight thousand jobs with Ohio adding 18,400 jobs and North Carolina with 16,900 jobs. For the same period, the worst was Wisconsin losing 13,200 jobs, thereafter Tennessee losing 12,100 jobs and Maryland losing 11,000 jobs. But When looking at the percentage of rising employment, the picture is quite different. Alaska added one percent to its workforce making the number one state in rising employment. South Dakota and North Dakota are number two and three for the month of June in the best percentage employment gain. The largest decrease in percentage still has Wisconsin at the top 3 after new Mexico and Vermont. Even percentage statistics can be misleading as the West has still the worst unemployment with a 9.4 percent unemployment in June. The ranking or order of best and worse keeps changing as some of the terms are different. Although the west has the worse unemployment, Nevada’s unemployment is at 11.6 in June, with Rhode Island second at 10.9 and California third with 10.7
