What is

Arrest information for the people.

That has been our goal since the site was founded in January of 2010. JailBase provides easy-to-use arrest information. Allowing the public, family, friends, and victims to search for and get notified of arrested individuals.

We collect public data from hundreds of sources through out the United States. This amounts to thousands of records a day. We take this public information and make it easier, and faster to find.

Using our in-house data collection technology, we have cataloged millions of arrest details and photos. Providing a valuable service to the public.

Free opt-out

JailBase provides a free opt-out free opt-out for individuals who do not want their arrest information posted on our site. The opt-out goes into affect 30 days from the request. We feel this balances the need for timely public arrest information and the needs of those arrested. After we receive a request, the page is setup to be automatically removed from JailBase.


JailBase has a free API that developers can use to provide arrest information on their website or application (subject to terms of use). We also have easy to use widgets and rss feeds that you can place on your website or blog.

No Paid Removals

Contrary to other sites, JailBase does not accept money to remove records from our site. In fact, we have never accepted money to remove records. We have received numerous requests, and the answer is always the same, No.
