Request For Arrest Record Check

The information listed on a PCSO Arrest Record Check only includes verified arrest and booking information occurring in Porter County, IN and should not be relied upon to determine an individual’s actual criminal record. This data will not reflect charging decisions made by the court system or the outcome of any criminal trials. An acquittal or dismissal of a criminal charge does not necessarily negate the validity of the arrest.


To obtain the final disposition of any criminal charges, contact the Porter County Clerk’s Office. You may also contact the arresting agency to inquire what information would be public record. The Odyssey System also provides a broader spectrum but usually only provides more recent information.


Arrest Record Checks are $10.00 cash, credit/debit or money order, available Monday thru Friday 8:30 am to 3:30 pm (except holidays). You may also make request by mail. Send name, date of birth, social security number, all alias names (maiden, married, etc.) contact information, mailing address and a money order made out to the Porter County Sheriff’s Office and send request to:
