Long Beach, Latest Questions and Answers
Q: Where can I see details about an arrest.
|A:The police and any other law enforcement such as the sheriff’s office will in many instances have instructions regarding how to obtain arrest reports or incident/accident reports. There are other methods if the person has been convicted such as a criminal background check which is an easy approach. Police reports are generally obtained by going through the department itself, however, a background check can be requested by private as well as government agencies. The venue of the court where the action is filed may also have an easy public access service where the criminal case can be viewed. |
Q: wHY WAS sCOTT dECANNIS ARRESTED?
|A:Arrest information can be viewed in several different ways. One easy method is to look up recently jailed persons by a particular law enforcement agency. If this occurred in Los Angeles county sheriffs department's jurisdiction and they were the arresting agency, you can conduct an inmate search here http://app4.lasd.org/iic/ajis_search.cfm. This search also covers arrests from various police agencies within LA county since the sheriffs department houses many of the detainees, however, the booking information may not show charges, but you can see the level of the charges such as whether it is a misdemeanor or felony. The information you can view includes arrest's time, date, location, by which department, in which court it's being sent to, actual release of the detainee and time, and any other case information available. For smaller crimes such as low level misdemeanors, details may not appear online.
Arrest records can also be requested from the law enforcement agency directly, this is found on their department website 'PALES: Public and Law Enforcement Services is responsible for archiving, retrieving, and releasing crime reports and booking jacket information it maintains', you can see the rest of it here http://www.lasdhq.org/divisions/tsdiv/record_id/ri_ovrview.html.

| Matteson, Michael|
Michael Eugene Matteson Michael (Mike) Eugene Matteson was born in Long Beach, California, November 4, 1965. He passed away on February 15, 2014, in Granbury, Texas, due to complications from a previous accident. When Mike was 5 1/2 he arrived on our doorstep with one small box of all his worldly belongings and became a very loved member of the Matteson family. He was a mischievous little imp with auburn hair, lots of freckles, two sweet dimples and a 'Mona Lisa' smile that would melt your heart. Mike loved to talk which wasn't always the thing to do at school. He was extremely active which also wasn't the best thing to do at school. He was extremely smart and verbal and had a wonderful sense of humor. Mike loved to read and would sit in his comfortable chair and read two or more books at once, switching back and forth between them. He graduated from Mt. Whitney High School and the College of the Sequoias. On a camping trip to Sequoia he discovered how to 'almost' catch squirrels and chipmunks with a fishing pole and peanuts. It was the beginning of a life long love of fishing. His favorite place was at Lake Kaweah on the family houseboat fishing, water skiing, hunting and catching rattlesnakes! His other favorite place was fishing at the Brazos River in Texas, occasionally catching an alligator gar fish which was an exciting feat. He is survived by his parents, Richard and Phyllis Matteson, sister Melinda Matteson, sister and brother-in-law Mark and Michelle Manning, nieces and nephews Aubrey, CR, Aaron, Carrie and Benjamin and two great-nephews. In Texas he leaves his special friends Oscar, Lupe and Rudy whom he could always depend upon and biological sister, Dawn, of Fort Worth, Texas. Gone from our Earth but always in our hearts. God speed, Michael. No services are planned.
