Brown County Arrest Records

Arrest records are legal documents containing information on a person as well as the reason for their arrest. While these documents precede actual court charges, the arrest does not indicate that the person is guilty of the incident or crime until an actual case is filed. Arrest records are considered as public documents hence its availability to the public; though there are some documents that are restricted especially if a case is undergoing trial or it is still under investigation. Some states restrict access to such records especially if the arrested individuals are juveniles, were never charged before or were acquitted of the crime. In the State of Texas, arrest records are not available to the public but a list of arrests or police blotters are available usually from the Sheriff’s Office or the law enforcement agency that made the arrest. The list contains basic information such as the arrested person’s full name, incident type, arresting agency and bail if available.
