How are Mugshots Collected in Arizona?
Like in other states in the United States, Arizona has set special rules and guideline to the collection and distribution of criminal records. Under the Federal and state Freedom of Information act imposed in Arizona, mugshots are a matter of public record; during the arrest process in the state of Arizona, personal information of the suspect is collected and recorded. Also, the arresting authority photographs the suspect and saves the photos. These photos are known as 'Mugshots' and they depict the suspect from different angles while displaying their height, name, and cases number.
Once all the data is collected, it is transferred, along with the mugshots, to the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS). The DPS holds criminal data about arrests in the state that is also maintained by local law enforcement authorities.
As mentioned, the public can access mugshots under the Freedom of Information Act in the state of Arizona. Those who with to access criminal records must submit a request with the county where the arrest took place or with the DPS. If permission is granted, the individual who requested the mugshots will receive information.
However, there are cases where access to mugshots is denied; in case a criminal record is expunged, sealed, or involves a minor, the public will not have access to it. As a result, mugshots in such cases will also be unavailable to the general public. In some cases, mugshots will be published by local law enforcement authorities as part of local police reports and criminal reports.
