Ask Questions, About Indiana

  • How do we find out if our neighbor has been arrested recently?
    Check the crime map for your area. There are free online inmate lists depending on the law enforcement agency and whether they put it online. (Staff)
  • Where do I find my court date?
    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. (Staff)
  • How to find active arrest warrants?
    Which county or city was the warrant from? You can enter the county or city name, then warrants, some areas have them online like Allen county (Staff)
  • I would Like to find dates and reasons for past arrests?
    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. (Staff)
  • I'm wanting to know how many arrests I 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. (Staff)
