Police Blotters; Arrest Logs
Police blotters or arrest logs maintained by county
police departments must be made available for
public inspection and copying under the UIPA. This log, which contains
a chronological listing of
arrests made, is not "criminal history record information"
that under State statutes is restricted from
disclosure. The disclosure of the names of arrested persons would
not result in an invasion of privacy,
because an arrest is a public event, not a private one.
