    Individual courts throughout Indiana put their case calendar online for public view. Without mentioning the county where the trial would be, there's no specific site to refer you to. Marion county, which has Indianapolis in its jurisdiction, have calendars online through their court website.

    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.

    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.

  • Q: Looking for Grandmothers arrest records around 1945-1950 or newspaper article about story. Where is the best place to find this information?

    Reply:

    Periodicals of the local area are generally kept by public libraries, you can access news on micro-fish or digitized and go even further back. A better question next is how far back does the police department which made the arrest go back in time.
