About Hawaii Public Record Searches

The Office of Information Practices, OIP was created by the Legislature in 1988 and promotes open and transparent government in Hawaii. OIP administers both the Uniform Information Practices Act, UIPA which requires open access to government records and the Sunshine Law which requires open public meetings. Exceptions to the general rule include records which, if disclosed, would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. There are five major islands of Hawaii and four counties, all of which were created in 1905. There are no separately incorporated cities in the entire state. No formal level of government exists below that of the county in Hawaii. Criminal history records are provided online by the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center. The Attorney General in the State of Hawaii is responsible for the statewide criminal history record information system, CJIS-Hawaii, the statewide Automated Fingerprint Identification System.

  • Q: Does law enforcement in Hawaii provide criminal arrest searches?

    Reply:

    Criminal arrest records can be requested directly from the police department. It is not the same as a criminal arrest search where you see results similar to a background check. Police arrest reports are single individual reports taken in by the department that made the arrest. It is similar to an incident report, or many other types of police reports. You will need to know where the arrest occurred to see where to request the report. For an entire search, the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center (HCJDC) provided by the attorney general, conduct a background check online. The walk in location is in Honolulu where the request can be made in person.

  • Q: Are individual's able to obtain arrest information from the state of Hawaii?

    Reply:

    The state offers an online electronic search from the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center which can be found on the Department of the Attorney General's site. This is a to view individual convictions, which is not the same as an arrest search. Arrests are not always prosecuted and convicted, and will likely not appear on these reports. You will do better by contacting the sheriffs department which made the arrest and request a copy from them directly. There are policies which may impose guidelines, but, arrest records are generally considered public less few exceptions.
