Search Arrest Records
In the state of Kentucky, criminal history information including Kentucky Arrest Records can be obtained by the general public from the Department of Correctional Services of Kentucky. Also responsible for maintaining the State’s criminal files are the Kentucky State Police (KSP). Both come under the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet. Other agencies such as the Department of Criminal Justice Training and the Department of Juvenile Justice are also linked in maintaining and updating of criminal history information at a state level. There are 83 AFIS fingerprint live-scan systems for accessing and updating of criminal documentations.
Criminal record reports can also be obtained by individuals, businesses, licensing agencies, government entities and others from the Administrative Office of the Courts but they are based on historic court activity and do not contain arrest records. According to the latest statistics, a total of 103,941 Kentucky Arrest Records are now on file in state agencies and their search can be made at the KSP. A name-based arrest background check at its Records Branch costs $20. The completed official form can be submitted by mail or in person to the KSP Criminal Records Dissemination Section office in Frankfort.
