Real-time arrest records on PeopleMap

Up to the hour information on incarcerated individuals

With over 160 million booking records, 38 million booking images, and covering 40 states + D.C., real-time incarceration and arrest records (RTIA) from PeopleMap on Thomson Reuters Westlaw™ delivers current information on incarcerated individuals. Determine when the arrest occurred, the arresting/booking/holding agency, the charge description, and many more data points relating to the arrest and the individual.

Many public records products include some arrest records, however, their data can often be historical (i.e. updates have stopped) or not updated for weeks or months at a time. RTIA on PeopleMap is a live gateway. This means, if your subject of interest was arrested at 7 p.m., you could find out as fast as 8 p.m.

Discover the benefits of RTIA

Client intake due diligence

Determine if a potential client is too risky to represent based on RTIA records and ensure your client isn’t withholding pertinent arrest information.

Case research

Find arrest records for potential experts and/or witnesses, discover if the opposing party has any impactful arrest records, and determine if a defendant is connected to an arrest.

Litigation preparation

Locate defendants for service of process, perform jury pool discovery, and uncover possible impeachment issues on defendants, witnesses, and/or experts.
