What is JailBase?
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.
How are We Different?
JailBase focuses on the transparency, the reliability, and the speed of our services. Here are some of the important ways we are different than the competition:
Millions of Records, Daily Updates
We collect thousands a record a day. Consistenly! People rely on our data so we actively monitor our collection process.
They have a small collection of mugshots or they are not updating their data on a regular basis.
No search or slow.
Search our database for free and get instant results.
Most other sites don't even offer searching. If the do, it's lacking features or really slow.
Free Opt Out
We have never accepted money to remove listings. We offer a free removal
that is fast and easy to use.
Welcome to the seedy world of reputation management: "We'll remove anything as long as you have the cash."
Where did that data come from?
JailBase provides a copy of the original source for every record we post.
We don't know of any other sites that post their source. How do you know they are accurate?
Try finding contact information.
We stand by our data. We are a real company (registered in Arizona). We post our mailing address on our contact page. We answer our emails.
Most other sites are hiding their contact information. If you can contact them, their policies are not posted or not clear.
Pay a fee, they might have the info.
Searching and viewing recent arrests is free. What you see is what we have.
Pay a monthly fee or signup for access.
JailBase sends out free notifications to anyone who wants to know if someone is arrested in the future.
Other sites don't offer this, or you are going to pay a fee.
JailBase provides a 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.
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.
