Search Arrest Records
Criminal History Systems Board, the central government agency for criminal information service of Massachusetts was renamed as Department of Criminal Justice Information Services (DCJIS) in 2010. However, its two main tasks remained unchanged. They are: 1) To support the criminal justice information system and, 2) To administer and provide criminal offender record information (CORI) to approved agencies, individuals and the public community in accordance to their classification.
Massachusetts Arrest Records form part of CORI files. They are data submitted from the various counties and criminal justice agencies across the state. These documents are updated on a daily basis and while they are technically accessible by the public, much of these documents are classified.
