  • How do I find dates and reasons for past arrests in Indiana?
    Beware of using background checks when you're looking for a specific arrest record, as many only include records of convictions, criminal courts etc. Arrests reports, similar to incident or accident reports, are obtained from the law enforcement department which created the report. The Indiana state police offers a limited criminal history search, and claims on its site to only have felonies and class A misdemeanor arrest records. If you're searching for the report, try going to the police or sheriffs department directly, or their site and see about getting the reports yourself. Usually, the defense attorney also has a copy. Not sure how public the arrest reports are, departments throughout the state seem to have restrictions as who can request them.

  • How do I find out how many arrests in Indiana, I have had over the years?
    You can request your own arrest reports directly from police records services. It's likely that they have a website and information with forms on where and how to put in the request. Some departments provide them to the person for free. Also, the defense attorneys will usually have a copy. Generally, background checks or criminal history search or any variety that says the same thing, will provide records of convictions, not solely arrests. However, the Indiana state police's criminal history search page states the following: "contains only felonies and class A misdemeanor arrests within the state of Indiana". This searches the entire state according to the ISP's site.
