Los Angeles County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What Are Los Angeles County Arrest Records?

Los Angeles County arrest records provide information on the apprehension and detention of any county resident. Los Angeles arrest records do not ascribe guilt to the record's subject because a person becomes guilty after a court ruling. As a result, these documents do not serve as criminal records. Los Angeles arrest records are available at the County Sheriff’s Office located at:

4700 Ramona Blvd
Monterey Park, CA 91754

In accordance with Sections 6250 and 6254 of the California General Code, the sheriff’s office can only provide access to arrest records to law enforcement and regulatory agencies, victims of reported crimes, and certain employers and private agencies. Requesting this information attracts a $23 charge payable to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). This is a non-refundable fee. To request records of personal arrests, individuals involved should visit the Police Administration Building during business hours from Monday to Friday. The office is located at:

100 West 1st St
Room PI-137
Los Angeles, CA 90012

The county’s law enforcement agency charges a fee of $16 for access to charge files, dispositions, and dates of arrests. It is also possible to request this information by mail. Applicants should simply send a formal search request to:

Los Angeles Police Department
P.O. Box 30158
Los Angeles, CA 90030

This request must include a full set of fingerprints on a standard fingerprint card, a personal mailing address, and the sum of $16 paid in check or money order.

Crime Statistics

Crime statistics for Los Angeles County show that there were 77,362 reported crimes in 2016, the last year with a complete record. Compared to the 2012 statistics for the county, this figure represents a 5% rise in the county’s crime rate over five years. Larceny was the most reported crime in 2016, with 35,928 incidents. This is followed by burglary and grand theft auto with 13,072 and 12,819 incidents, respectively. There were 227 homicides, 845 rapes, 4,756 robberies, 9,134 aggravated assaults, and 581 cases of arson in LA county in that year.

Police reports provided by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office show that aggravated assault had the highest number of arrests with 5,175 adult and juvenile arrests. Larceny and grand theft auto came second and third with 4,170 and 2,129 arrests, respectively. Arson recorded the smallest number of arrests with 82 incidents while there were 139, 115, 1,450, and 1,794 total arrests for homicide, rape, robbery, and burglary, respectively.

What Are Los Angeles County Criminal Records?

Los Angeles County criminal records are documents that provide information about the criminal activity of county residents. On criminal records, one will usually find information about a crime committed, such as the subject's arrest history, pending charges, and details about the criminal conviction. Criminal records are also called rap sheets throughout the State of California. The county's criminal records contain data collated from various local agencies such as county law enforcement, trial courts, et cetera. Criminal records are not Los Angeles public records under California laws. As a result, only certain people can access them.

How Do I Get Los Angeles County Criminal Records?

Los Angeles criminal records are available in the depositories of state and local agencies. The California criminal records database serves as the state's principal repository. Records are also available at county courts and the various law enforcement offices in the county. The state's Department of Justice maintains criminal records. To obtain copies of criminal records, individuals will need to submit fingerprint images and pay a processing fee of $25 to the Department of Justice. The requester should download and follow the instructions provided by the attorney general. Added information is available on the website of the Office of the Attorney General.

How to Find Los Angeles County Sex Offender Information

According to the provisions of California’s Megan’s Law enacted in the 1996 Penal Code § 290.46, the California Department of Justice maintains a registry of sex offenders in the state. Anyone can search this database on the state’s Megan’s Law website. The homepage allows visitors to search for sex offenders by name and by address.

To see all sex offenders registered in Los Angeles County, the record seeker should head to the search page and select Los Angeles from the County drop-down menu.
