Criminal Arrest Records

CCBI maintains records of Wake County arrest data only for offenses outlined in North Carolina General Statute § 15A-502 CCBI does not maintain arrest data resulting from infractions, citations or traffic offenses that do not meet the criteria of the statute. CCBI criminal arrest records from April 27, 2007, are available online for free through the CCBI Criminal Arrest Records Portal.

CCBI will provide a certified copy of an arrest record for a fee of $15 per name searched. CCBI's online public database provides the same information that will be provided on a certified record check.

Certified copies may be obtained:

  • By mailing a request and a check or money order of $15 per name searched to:
         Attn: Arrest Records
         3301 Hammond Road
         Raleigh, NC 27603
  • Or in person by scheduling an appointment here.

Removing Arrest Data

How can I get my arrest information removed?

Criminal arrest records maintained by CCBI are defined as public record under N.C.G.S. §132-1.4 and may not be deleted from our records absent the receipt and processing of a valid Petition and Order for Expunction or other authorized court order. For more information regarding the expunction process or offenses that qualify for an Order for Expunction see Article 5 of Section 15A: Criminal Procedures Act of the North Carolina General Statutes.


How can I get my arrest information off of a commercial site?

CCBI has made available all arrest information authorized to be released by N.C. General Statute at no charge on our website for those seeking such information in order to provide for the most efficient and cost effective delivery of services. This information is publicly accessible and CCBI does not track access to this site, nor does CCBI have any control over how the information is used. Should private or commercial entities choose to publish or otherwise distribute that information, any requests for the removal of such information should be directed to the publishing entity.
