Westchester County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Westchester County Arrest Records?

Westchester County arrest records are summarized reports of official arrest. Arrests in New York are for the purpose of questioning, apprehension, and detention in connection to a crime. These documents are generated by the law enforcement agency that conducted the arrest. Westchester arrest records are presumed public. The Westchester County Sheriff's Office provides public access to arrest records upon request. Westchester arrest records provide the following data:

  • General information on the record's subject (full name, sex, race, age, and date of birth)
  • The date of the arrest event
  • Time and location (County, city, town, or village) of the arrest
  • The name of the arresting officer

According to the 2018 report, the index crime rate of Westchester county declined by 16% when compared to 2017 data. While fewer offenses were recorded across the board, the decline was mostly accounted for by the 17% drop in property crimes with larceny-theft incidents going from 8,030 in 2017 to 6,712 reports in 2018. Incidents of motor vehicle theft and burglary also slid by 28% and 19%, or 812, and 457 reported offenses. Similarly, total violent crimes declined by 14% with aggravated assault dropping from 1,198 to 1,087 reported incidents in the 12-month span, while robbery and rape also declined significantly to 445 and 123 reported incidents, respectively.
