The Arkansas State Records mission is to provide, to every person, the right to obtain, preview, detect and examine public records, ensuring residents of the state of Arkansas are provided access in accordance with the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act.
The main goal of this website is to provide a method to search for, obtain, and examine public records easily, efficiently, concisely, and without the requester having to specify a “need to know.”
Arkansas State Records contains information concerning criminal records, court records, vital records, and includes information on 25 million transparent public records.
Arkansas public records have been created since 1823 and usually include information from all 75 counties. In the past 30 years, digitalization of these records has become the new standard, and records are becoming increasingly available online through both government and third party websites. This helps to ensure Arkansas abides by the commitment of the United States of America to remain a fair and just society for all.
