Alameda County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Alameda County Arrest Records?

Alameda County arrest records contain information about apprehensions of individuals in the county after a suspected crime or the issuance of warrants. These records are different from criminal or conviction records because they do not often contain information about the convictions of individuals. Instead, the information contained in these records focuses on the individual, the alleged code violation, the apprehension, and the preceding actions like questioning, release, arraignment, and so on.

The county Sheriff’s Office and police department are in charge of generating and maintaining Alameda County arrest records. Interested individuals can obtain these records by sending requests to the specific agency. Requests to the Sheriff’s office can be made online or directed to the warrants, records, and crime analysis unit at 2000 150th Avenue, San Leandro, CA 94578. Requests to the Alameda P.D. should be submitted via mail or in-person to 1555 Oak Street, Alameda, CA 94501. Alameda arrest records can also be contained within criminal history records obtained from the state’s Department of Justice.

What are Alameda County Criminal Records?
