Davidson County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What Are Davidson County Arrest Records?

Davidson County arrest records refer to reports and documents created by law enforcement agencies in the county that present information on persons who have been taken into custody within their jurisdiction. These documents contain the identifying information of the arrestee, criminal charges, warrant details, time/date of apprehension, name of arresting officer/agency, and other related data.

Interested persons can obtain Davidson County arrest records from the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department by making requests in person or via mail to:

Metro Nashville Police Department
Central Records Division
811 Anderson Lane
Suite 100
Madison, TN 37115

A local arrest record check costs $13, which can be paid with check and money order for mailed requests but includes the option of cash, credit card, and personal or cashier's check for over-the-counter order. Include the report or offense number and return address for results to be mailed in the request or send a filled application form.

Note: Davidson arrest records do not include information on the disposition of the court case. So, these documents should not be used as a substitute for complete criminal or conviction records as arrested persons may be acquitted of charges.

Crime Statistics

The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department collates crime data for this city-county, and its most recent statistics are for 2017. That year, the county recorded 7,813 violent crimes, a 2.9% increment compared to the figure for the previous year.

What Are Davidson County Criminal Records?
