What are Nassau County Arrest Records?

Nassau County arrest records are official documents generated by the county's law enforcement agencies. These records contain information on the frequency of arrests in the county, the crime(s) for which an individual was arrested, details of warrants issued, as well as general information about a suspect.

An arrest record does not provide definitive proof of a subject's involvement in a crime. It only informs that an individual has been taken into custody as part of an active investigation. Thus, arrest records may not be used as a substitute for criminal history information.

Information on how to obtain arrest records in Nassau County can be found on the county’s website. Arrest records can also be obtained from the Nassau County Sheriff's Office. Alternatively, an individual may use State Records’ online search tools.
