Hudson County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What Are Hudson County Arrest Records?

Hudson County arrest records provide an official documentation of apprehensions of suspected offenders in the county. These documents summarize the arrest incidents in the territory and provide information on the alleged crime, arrestee, apprehension, and agency that took the suspect into custody. However, Hudson County arrest records rarely contain information about the prosecution and sentencing of arrested persons.

Instead, the Sheriff’s Office focuses on the arrest details, which is collated to have an index of crime data or criminal incidents within its jurisdiction. Therefore, individuals who wish to obtain Hudson arrest records should note that these documents do not provide sufficient proof of criminal involvement. Moreover, arrests may be made erroneously, and suspects may be released or found not guilty.

Crime Statistics

In 2016, Hudson County recorded a total of 12,824 crimes. Compared to the previous year, the overall crime rate dropped by 1%. With 1,192 incidences, aggravated assault was the most prevalent violent crime in the county in 2016. There were also 30 murders, 136 rapes, and 878 robberies in the same period. Property crime incidents include 1,657 burglaries, 7,859 larceny-thefts, and 1,072 motor vehicle thefts.

A quick analysis of the year-on-year crime trend in Hudson County reveals that robbery (3%) and larceny (2%) rates increased between 2015 and 2016. Murder (6%), aggravated assault (8%), and motor vehicle theft (1%) saw modest declines while rape (11%) and burglary (11%) recorded a double-digit reduction. There were seven murder arrests in Hudson County in 2016, while 23 people were booked for rape. Robbery accounted for 382 arrests, and aggravated assault was the cause of 697 arrests. The crime with the highest number of arrests in 2016 was larceny-theft with 1,247 separate bookings. Burglary brought in 361 arrestees while motor vehicle theft accounted for 26.

What Are Hudson County Criminal Records?

Hudson County criminal records are official documents that provide summaries of a person’s criminal activities in the county. Unlike Hudson arrest records, these records are rap sheets that contain information on both apprehension and prosecutions. The data enclosed in these documents include personal identifying details, arrest and indictment history, pleas, and conviction. Some of the personal data include names, birth data, mugshots, full fingerprints, and physical descriptions.

The data contained in the Hudson County criminal record are collated at the state level by the New Jersey State Police and the New Jersey Judiciary from the County Sheriff, municipal police, and county courts.
