Overview of the Return of Arrest Records in Minnesota
If you are arrested in Minnesota there are several different agencies that keep and provide arrest records to the general public. These agencies can include the city police department, county sheriff, and the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA). This occurs even in cases were there were no criminal charges following the arrest.
If nothing is done by the subject of the arrest records, these agencies will retain these arrest records even after criminial charges are dropped and in many cases they remain publically available.
Minnesota law allow individuals to request the return of their arrest records in certain cases. If the request is successful the agency will return the actual arrest records to the individual and not merely seal them (as in the case of a criminal record expungement).
