You can gather than information on your own with police reports and statistics. You can see the stats for year over year on the department's website, if that particular department does not offer that, you can look to the various ways reports of arrests are made public. Crime mapping can be specified to look up arrests, or criminal activity by address or block. Although the records of arrests or incidents are public, some are easier to access than others. Marshall's office and the fbi have their own statistics, even by different states. Even with crime mapping, the reports are obtained from specific departments.
Most arrests are from local law enforcement agencies, such as the county sheriff or city police departments. They have their own jail lists, booking logs..inmates and so on. The City of Springfield is a good example, they have a seven day arrest log freely open to the public. It's hard to say where to go and look for the arrest without being aware of the arrest's location.
Were the charges filed as a result of that arrest?
The question indicates that the person who asked does not know if the other person was arrested!!!! And, you answered with another question, as if this person who knew anything. If there's no certainty about the arrestment, how can anyone know if there were charges filed in result of that arrest. If they knew about the charges, obviously, the would know about the arrest. (???????????????)
So far, nothing of value has been provided by either previous posts. There are news wires which publish recent arrests, there are two sources below. They are in date order, when you click on more, earlier dates can be viewed. Both state and county jails have inmate searches of people booked/arrested. County jails are mostly people before being charged, just booked, then they will be under the doc when convicted.
Names, addresses, age and more are found spread out in public records, mostly as a part of. Take property information for example, a public record which can be searched online or going to the recorders offices along with many other official documents, will show the address, possibly the owner's spouse, dates of residency and more through other documents. You can find more information by looking into court cases. You may not be able to view the entire case online, but, more importantly you will be able to see that there is a record of what and where to get it from. You can begin looking without a clear aim to a specific public record, however, by simply looking for records, you can see what else is out there. Public record sites such as this one help you with these types of searches. There is a free search above under Massachusetts Free Court Records Search. This will give you a quick free court search, but does not guarantee to cover all records. In this instance, the data only goes back to 2014 and covers federal, circuit and appellate cases. You will need to search through more than just one or two databases, your goal should be to find as many databases as possible. Some less than relevant databases may uncover information you don't expect to be helpful.
