Westmoreland County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Westmoreland County Public Records?

In line with the Pennsylvania Right to Know Law, Westmoreland County public records refer to information generated and maintained by local and state agencies in relation to their statutory business. Public records exist in different forms, including documents, letters, books, maps, photographs, and sound recordings. This is regardless of whether they are physically stored or electronically maintained. However, there are specific records maintained by state and local agencies that are exempted from open access. Some of these include:

  • Records protected by privilege;
  • Records exempt from public disclosure by federal regulation, state regulation, or judicial decree;
  • Records that contain information that may result in a substantial risk of physical harm to an individual or their personal security;
  • Records that contain information that is likely to result in the loss of funds by a government agency;
  • Records that contain information that may jeopardize public safety and security;
  • Records that contain a person’s medical, psychological, or psychiatric history or disability status;
  • Records that contain a person’s personal identification information, including their driver’s license number, social security number, telephone numbers, personal email addresses, personal financial information, etc.

When a record seeker requests an exempted record, the record custodian is to communicate the situation to the record seeker.

Westmoreland County Crime Statistics

The Westmoreland County crime statistics are compiled and maintained by the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP), together with the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, and the figures are published yearly.

The concurrent property crimes also indicate 21 arsons, 135 motor vehicle thefts, 2,749 larcenies, and 535 burglaries. Based on these figures, Westmoreland County recorded, approximately, 4.51% increase in violent crimes and a 17.28% decrease in property crimes, compared to the previous year. This accounts for a 33% increase in murders, but a 15.6% decrease in motor vehicle thefts, a 15.88% decrease in larcenies, and a 12% decrease in rapes. Arson remained the same between both years.

Are Westmoreland County Criminal Records Public?

Westmoreland County criminal records are available to the public. Residents of Westmoreland County can request background checks from the PSP. The law enforcement agency accepts requests online and by mail. To submit a request for a criminal history report online, record seekers are to visit the Pennsylvania Access to Criminal History (PATCH) website. To order a background check by mail, the record seeker will need one of three forms. One of such forms is the Criminal History Request Form (SP4-164) for requesting a regular background check of an individual. Record seekers can also obtain and review their own personal criminal history using the Individual Access and Request Form (SP4-170). Completed forms should be mailed to:

Pennsylvania State Police Central Repository - RCPU
1800 Elmerton Avenue
Harrisburg, PA 17110-9758

The PSP does not charge for background checks ordered using the SP4-164A form. However, it charges $20 for each criminal report requested with an SP4-170 form and $22 for a regular background check ordered with an SP4-164 form. Requesters must pay these fees with money orders made out to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. To facilitate requests for Westmoreland criminal records, whether through mail or online, the record seeker must provide some necessary information relating to the subject of the search, such as the subject’s name, sex, date of birth, and more.
