Online criminal records, including mugshots, are available on the online searchable database managed by the Arkansas Department of Correction. The mugshots include photos and can be searched by any criteria like name, location, and so on.
Mugshots are also available in online databases operated by some county jails and Sheriff’s offices. Counties that don’t publish this kind of information online can be reached by phone. Victim notifications in case of inmate escape or release are available.
The Arkansas Crime Information Center offers a registry of sex offenders statewide.
