About Arkansas Public Record Searches

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.

  • Question: I need to get records from an arrest in 1999 how do I go about doing that?? I don't have the case number but I do have arrest tracking number
    By Lynnda
    Oct 24, 2017
    Reply:

    Depends on the county, city or department which created the report. You can look up that department's policy regarding public's request for the arrest record. If there was a case which went to court, you can sometimes find the arrest report in the case file.

  • Question: How do I find out if someone was just arrested
    By Tommy
    Sep 14, 2017
    Reply:

    You can look up arrest logs in the country where the person was taken into custody by law enforcement (usually sheriffs department since it's county). Checking crime maps can show you which department responded and made the arrest. Second: Check the recent criminal activity reports for new incidents that are published by selecting a particular county in the menu above.

    Reply:

    Where was the accident and were the police there to take a report? Was it on the hwy or on city/county roads? The Arkansas state police has a webpage which shows fatal crashes online by date. You can see summaries, not the official reports for free. There are request portals on law enforcement webpages where the forms are often provided.
