Founded in January 2010, Jail.com provides easily accessible information about arrests. The information lets family, victims and the general public search and receive notifications for individual arrest records.
We gather our information from sources across the United States. Each day, we receive thousands of records. We catalog this information and make easy for you to access. Our accurate data technology catalogs the faces, names and details of arrests from across the country.
We, free of charge, offer an opt-out service for anyone that does not want their arrest information posted online. The opt-out feature takes affect 30 days after the initial request. There is a 30-day time period between the request and its removal. It allows time for the release of public arrest information while honoring the requests of those arrested. When the request is received, the information is automatically removed from our website.
Jail.com does not take money to remove records from our website.
It is our policy to not remove a record from our website unless it is inaccurate. Any record found on this website can be found online. If the information presented by Jail.com matches the information that is available to the public, we consider it to be accurate. If you notice that the information is inaccurate, please notify us using the contact page. We do have an opt-out service that takes affect 30 days after signing up.
The only thing booking or arrest records show is when, who and why someone was booked or arrested. It does not determine someone’s guilt.

It is the responsibility of the website’s user to find this information.
Yes. In most situations, anyone who has been booked would have their arrest appear on this website. Whether a person is released before processing or after is something we cannot determine.
There are some situations where the record is included on Jail.com. These instances include:
Records do not get removed from the website unless the person has requested an opt-out. When that occurs, we delete the record from out website and from major search results. It is important to note that we cannot control the results of independent search engines. It can take weeks for their search results to get updated. If the record is before 7/2/2013, the removal is under our old guidelines. Any record before this date is automatically removed after six months.
We do not charge to remove arrest records. Our opt-out service is free of charge. Report anyone that attempts to charge you for these services.
