Obtain a report from JPD

The Jonesboro Police Department Records Division is the unit which handles public records requests. Read the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act here.

If requested, we acknowledge your right to remain anonymous and strive to adhere to Arkansas FOIA Laws. We also want to make records accessible to the public. Therefore we have several methods to choose for making your request. Regardless of the method you choose, we will let you know how much the report will cost.

You can request records in several ways:

Records that are part of an open and ongoing law enforcement investigation are protected as “undisclosed investigations” under the FOIA. Martin v. Musteen, 303 Ark. 656, 799 S. W.2d 540 (1990). This is a question of fact in each case. Id. As such, these cases may not be released and we will be unable to accommodate your request.
