Jail logs and mugshots are public records! "The sheriff must keep, in his office and subject to the inspection of the public during office hours, a well-bound book, to be procured at the expense
of the county, in which he must enter a description of each prisoner received into the county jail, showing the name, age, sex, color and any other distinguishing marks, together with the charge for which
such prisoner is held, the order and date of commitment and the order and date of release." Section 36-22-8 of the Code of Alabama.
This also applies to Alabama State Police and City Police.
(Not all law enforcement records are public records. Any record containing sensitive information, such as ongoing criminal investigations, are not made available to the public.)
According to the US Department of Justice, almost half of crimes are
committed in the criminal’s own neighborhood. The first place to look for an individuals criminal records is in each town and county where the person has lived.
