Looking to the state level, Louisiana does provide some information on arrests, active warrants, and arrest records. The Louisiana State Police Public Safety Services department has a bureau of Criminal Investigation and Information. At the bureau’s website, various forms and resources are listed. However, several possible information sources are restricted to only certain approved users. Notwithstanding this, approved searchers may access information about criminal background checks, rap disclosure forms (typically used by licensing boards), fingerprint identification, the Louisiana computerized criminal history system (arrest, case disposition, and incarceration data), the expungement process, Louisiana’s sex offender registry, and criminal histories.
Louisiana’s State Police Department also manages a “Law Enforcement Network.”That means they must ensure all municipal and parish agencies get the information they need. They also work with nation-wide databases.
