Mississippi County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Mississippi County Arrest Records?

Mississippi arrest records are documents created by the county or state law enforcement agencies that provide information concerning apprehensions and detentions carried out in the county following an alleged criminal offense or after arrest warrants are issued.

While arrest records are often included in criminal records, these are not synonymous with convictions and should not be confused with crime rates. This is because not all arrests lead to criminal convictions, and innocent people are often apprehended erroneously. Rather, arrest records provide information such as the name of the arresting officer, place and time of arrest, warrant and detention specifics, holding facility, and booking details.

Mississippi County arrest records are obtainable from the agency that made the arrest. Persons can find information via the Sheriff’s Office press release webpage or send queries to the office at;

685 North County Road 599
Luxora, AR 72358
Phone: (870) 658-2242
