Arrest Records in Hennepin County, Minnesota

Arrest records are reports that detail detainment by law enforcement upon suspicion of a crime. Most include the name of the arresting agency or personnel, the arrested individual's personal data, and the incident's context. However, these are not the same as criminal records, as arrests are not proof of criminal activity. So, they should not be searched for by criminal history since they are likely part of investigations. In other cases, Hennepin arrest records may contain sensitive information about minors or security details, so many are sealed. The non-confidential arrest records are stored at the County Sheriff’s office. Hennepin County has 46 police departments, and the crime rate is 32.4 per 1,000 residents.
