How to Remove Georgia Mugshots & Georgia.Arrests.org

Updated on July 17, 2012

Getting a Mugshot Removed From Georgia.Arrests.og and other Georgia Websites

If you were arrested in the state of Georgia within the last 10 years, chances are you might have a mugshot appearing on Georgia.arrests.org, bustedmugshots.com or mugshots.com. These sites are the largest hosts of mugshot records in Georgia. Georgia.arrests.org currently has over 1 million records on their site.

All hope is not lost, your record can be removed from each of these sites and if assisted by a reputable company the mugshot often times be removed in as little as 1 day.

Getting a mugshot record removed from each of these sites, and ultimately Google can be a tedious and long process unless assisted by professional help, we will give a list of companies we recommend for mugshot removal services later in this post. To understand the removal process, you must first understand that each website is owned and operated by a different company. This means that each URL will need to be removed by a different manner. The benefits of using a mugshot removal service is they have removed countless mugshots and know exactly how to remove each URL.

As often as I hear the question "How do I get my mugshot removed" I also get the question "Why is my mugshot even on the Internet in the first place. To really understand why a mugshot would be listed on a particular website we need to first explore the laws relating to public records.

What are the laws?

Why is my mugshot allowed on the Internet?

Mugshots being publicly displayed is not something new, mugshots of high profile celebrities have been circulated in the news and online since the 1800's, what is new is private companies collecting millions of mugshot records and re-displaying them on a public forum that allows virtually anyone to have access to the information.

Currently the mugshot websites are protected by two distinct laws and use these to collect data and information.

1) The freedom of information act - Also know as FOIA, this act is a federal law that was created to give U.S. citizens access to government records. In many cases sites like the arrests.org websites are using the FOIA act to instantly access thousands of records.

2) Open Public Records Act (OPRA) are both relatively new laws that were passed which allow the public dissemination of certain government records. As a result, anyone can access your public arrest records.

Little legal action can be taken against the mugshot websites as the records they are displaying are already public records. These companies are merely re-displaying the public records. Some states like Indiana and counties in Colorado like Pueblo have banned access to the records to prevent these companies from getting new data.

The public dissemination of mugshot records is such a new issue that most laws and regulations have not caught up with times. While many people feel the public access to these records is a violation of privacy, others argue that it is useful information that should be available to the public.

What are the Major Gerogia Mugshot Websites

Mugshots.com - This is probably the oldest and most well established site in the industry. Mugshots.com has mugshot records from almost every state in the U.S. Mugshots.com has more access to records then almost any other site we have seen. It has been reported the site has some records dating as far back as the 80's. There is no real reason why you might be on georgia.arrests.com and not mugshots.com, some people are on only one site while others find themselves on multiple websites.

BustedMugshots.com - This site and it's affiliate website, www.mugshotsonline.com are well established in Google and have very good search engine optimization techniques to help them rank very well in the search engines.

Georgia.arrests.org - This is a newer website to come online, this site was developed in 2012 by the owners of the popular Florida website florida.arrests.org. The website is laid out very similar to the original Florida website and hosts images from counties all across Georgia.

Mugshots.com - This is the largest mugshot database around and hosts records from every state and even other countries. This site has more extensive records than any other site and is updated frequently.

Mugshot Removal Services

Companies to Remove Georgia.Arrests.org and other mugshot listings

Obviously your online reputation is more important now then ever, people are often referring to an online reputation as the new credit score, having a mugshot photo show up for your name could be one of the worst scenarios possible. This can hurt potential job opportunities, ruin careers and much more. If you have an arrest record online, you should seriously consider hiring an online reputation repair firm to help you clean this up.

InternetReputation.com - This company specializes in removing private information and mugshot records from the Internet. The company offers same day mugshot removal on all the major search engines, Google, Yahoo and Bing. The company uses page removals to remove the actual page from the entire search engine. This appears to be the most effective solution for removing a mugshot entirely. Pricing starts at $399.00 for 1 mugshot website and varies on a case by case basis.

Sheriffmugshots.com - This company specializes in removing Florida and Georgia mugshots and works similar to InternetReputation.com by removing the entire URL from the search engines. The company has good reviews and appears to offer a good service. Pricing starts at $399.00 and goes up from there.

Removemymug.com - Offers mugshot removal services for almost every mugshot website. The company offers a similar guarantee as the other companies and has good online reviews. Prices start at $399 and go up from there.

Reputation.com - This company uses positive information to push down the mugshots. They use what is called reputation management. This method is not as effective as removing the actual mugshot, but works well in some situations. Prices start at $3000.00 and go up from there.

It's Removed Now What?

Depending on what type of option you used to remove your mugshot the link can remain as a "dead" page in the search engines for several days. What takes place next is called "de-indexing" there is tools that can be used to speed up this process, that webmasters can use. The process consists of the search engine spider going through the page and recognizing the page is dead. Once the spider recognizes the page is dead, they will send a notification back to Google or the other search engine and remove the page.

Often times you will see what is known as a "404" page immediately after having a mugshot removed. This is a code used by websites that means "page is not found" when you see this it means you mugshot has been removed and the listing will drop out of Google shortly.

It is recommended that after you have removed the actual record you work on getting your record expunged through the court systems, this will lower the chances of public companies having access to your information.

Recordclearing.org - This is an online resource for people looking to get their criminal record expunged from the Internet.

Having an arrest record online is not something anyone wants to go through. Fortunately there is solutions to help people get these deleted.

      THESE SITES HAVE RUNED MY CHANCES FOR BETTER OPPORTUNITY AT EMPLOYMENT AS A SINGLE FATHER RAISING CHILDREN AS I WAS NEVER CONVICTED SO WHY SHOULD I PAY A DIME. I SAY FILE CHARGES AGAINST THE COMPANIES TRYING TO OEOFIT WHEN THEY WERE TOLD TO REMOVE IT I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY AND I AM NOT GOING RO AND IT WILL GET REMOVED AS I INTEND TO TAKE ACTION IF THEY DO NOT. YOU DO NOT HAVE THE TO PROFIT OFF MY LIKENESS IF I WAS NOT CONVICTED IT IS WRONG. GEORGIA LAW 845 STATES YOU CANNOT DO IT BECAUSE YOU ARE CREATING A FINANCIAL HARDSHIP. I DID NOT COMNIT A CRIME FOR WHICH I WAS CONVICTED SO WHY TRY TO EXTORT MONEY FROM ME. THAT IS THE REAL CRIME!

      Where: Georgia State Capitol, 30334

      Date:    February 11, 2013

      Time:    9:00 A.M

       

      Hello Everyone:

       

      From your feedback and concerns regarding exposure of oneâs identity as it relates to privacy, please rest assured that we are not taking roll, and we did not invite the press.  If you do not want to share your name be creative and use middle names, initials (e.g. JT), and perhaps maiden names.  It depends on each personâs comfort level.  The Capitol is Our house (The Peopleâs House) and you are welcome to come and go anytime.  Itâs open for us to share our concerns with our lawmakers, and believe it or not, they want to hear from us.  No one is singled out in the room except for the members of the Committee during the introduction.  That has been my experience.   

       

      The Judiciary Subcommittee is meeting to discuss HB 150 on Monday 11, 2013, which is our âMug Shot Removal Bill".  This is the first hearing on HB 150, and we want the subcommittee to see our public support, our representative (Rep. Bruce) support of the Bill, and to hear (testimony) some of our concerns. We want the Bill to push forward to the next step and your participation will give us a fighting chance.  While everyone may not be able to testify, your presence will speak volumes.  I hope I was able to answer some of your concerns.

       

      You asked Rep. Bruce âWhat can I do to help?â  If I can speak for him â  If you canât come out and let your voices be heard, come out and show your support for HB 150. 

       

      Thank you and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday.

      Although it is unfair for people to have their mugshot remain on the internet after they have completed their sentence, it is beneficial for those people who might not know they have a dangerous criminal near them. Although all are not dangerous some are, and people should have the right to protect their families if someone could pose a threat.

      This article contains some really useful information regarding mugshot removal. I actually have an Uncle who was looking for a company who offers a service like this so Iâm glad I stumbled upon this resource. InternetReputation.com seems to be one of the best options out there. I have heard of this company before and from what I can tell, they are reputable. I believe mugshots should not be posted all over the internet for the simple fact that although the person may have committed a crime, he or she still has rights. People make mistakes and that is a fact of life. I donât feel that they should have a permanent picture posted online for anyone to see who happens to plug their name into a search engine. If you want to find out in depth information about a person, then I feel you should have to dig a little deeper and get their records.

      Mugshots posted online have its positive and negative impact. Positive if that person is still dangerous and the public will be informed, negative if the person already changed and is starting a new life which will affect his future and his social life. Being able to remove it specially online is incredible and will definitely help that person a lot.

      I agree with being able to look up mugshots online. I think every state should do this and they should not allow a way for one to have it removed. This is just one more way to deter crime. Like they say don't do the crime if you can't do the time. As technology advances it will be that much easier to track criminals and their offenses.

      I wish that I had looked up a mug shot before I started using on line dating services.

      I dated a man for several weeks and actually was falling hard for him. His behavior became odd. Then one day he told me about is criminal past. I was devastated at the time and could have been spared the heartache if I only knew what kind of a person I was getting involved with. On the other hand, I can understand that someone with a criminal background would want to keep his face off the internet especially if he or she is trying to turn his or her life around.

      Having your mug shot online can be more than just an embarrassment. Friends, family, colleagues and employers (both current and potential) can very easily use police photos to damage your reputation. Although criminals who are a threat to the people around them should be exposed in the interests of public safety, is it really necessary to post a photo of everyone who has made a foolish mistake or minor transgression? Although there are companies that can remove mug shots that have been posted, the damage is already done. I think State Representative Roger Bruce has the right idea when it comes to making the posting of police mug shots online more difficult.

      "Mugshot" concept is not new but I heard it for the first time while I read this article. I am really amazed because of the availability of information about arrested people in Georgia. Obviously, this is good for the people to get the information on the safety purpose however, sometimes It's turn into a disaster for the people who was victimized by Mugshots. Because, It's one type of violation of general public rights. Some laws are there to support this mugshots but long term mugshots record make the arrested people much more pissed off. Nice thing is there are many way to remove mugshots publicly. So, service related mugshots removal should be on focused and make them to spread all over on the perspective of It's bad side.

      I don't think that it is right that mugshots are allowed to be posted up on the internet for all the public to find and view. It makes sense as to if the cops and higher up governing bodies would be able to have access to this information, but not everyone in the world should have access to things such as this. People should at least have the choice of releasing things like this on to the internet for billions of people to see. I understand that the freedom of information act and open public records act allow this information to be out there...but i think that these laws need to be looked over. It can be limited as to who can view what and it doesn't need to be seen by every possible person living. There should be more restrictions and regulations on these laws.

      The best way to remove Mugshot Records in the state of Georgia depends on your situation. If you did not commit a crime you can legally sue or perhaps even arrest someone for defaced you dishonestly in public. If you did do something the best way to deal with it would be to find privacy laws, hire someone or negioate with the person who is out to attack you on the web. I believe that the best way to do this would be to hire someone. You could hire a writer but this would not be as smart as hiring a lawyer . This is because lawyers do not get any money unless they successfully solve a case. Georgia is famous for having a high density of crime and the last thing a person wants is a criminal repution from doing underground activity in the state of Georgia united states of America. One of the best options would be to go to internet reputation.com it hire s lawyers.

      Wow I don't believe the law has caught up with technology. It seems wrong that these companies should be able to post pictures of people just because they had a brush with the law. I wonder how these other companies can remove the page for $400? I guess that is a small price to pay to get your picture removed.

      I don't think it is so wrong for them to just put your mugshot up for the world to see but they should also state with it what you got arrested for. Certain people like to pull up information on people if they feel they need to and those kind of websites help them find out if they are trouble or not. But as for the less serious arrest I think that it is good that they can just go and take them down.

      I'm pretty much undecided about this. In ways I think you should be able to have your mushots deleted offline. I do think it's wrong for paparazzi to use famous peoples mugshots for entertainment purposes. But then again, I don't think you SHOULD be able to get your mugshot taken offline. If you commit any crime it should stay on your record. Also, your mugshot should be available online. So what employers see it? They also ask you on your applications whether or not you are a convicted felon. I don't necessarily see how this is any different. Employers want to know WHO they're hiring and if they're trustworthy. Like they always say... "you do the crime, you do the time." Well, if doing the time means having your mugshot online, so be it.

      @saft-uliah: This is correct. Sites like georgia.arrests.org and bustedmugshots.com will keep a record permanently unless some action is taken to remove it. The sheriff websites tend to remove mugshots records from their sites after a certain amount of time.

      Nice article ! Info is incredibly helpful. The web services for removing mugshots do work, however just for the websites that don't seem to be place up by the arresting agency. If the mugshot is on the location of the arresting agency, it'll keep there. He ought to agonize regarding over the mugshots though. If an employer runs a background check, the arrest can show up unless there's an expungement ordered. It is important you create certain the corporate you're employed with has expertise in removing completely different forms of mugshots from different websites. Thanks for the article.

I am glad I came across this and I am very glad that there are ways to go about getting them removed, especially for the petty crimes or mistermenors. Knowing the laws is very important, glad that you can link to them from this page. Going to use this service or services and keep and eye out for others like it, now that I aware that they exist.

      In this day and age the internet is so accessible and your name is out there on social networking sites. That leaves you open to anyone and everyone googling your name and finding your mug shot. I believe in privacy, even in cases of arrest. That should be something between yourself, and the officers of arrest, not for friends, family and strangers. I am fully in support of this mugshot removal program to save reputation and I'm glad that steps can be taken to improve our records.

      I believe mugshot removal is a just service to right a wrong our society has over time become complacent in the way of destroying our rights to privacy. Just a stepping stone and/or slippery slope to no privacy at all in the future. However, I do believe those who have committed heinous crimes such as first degree murder and sexual assault and other like crimes of extreme violent nature should be stripped of their privacy mainly for the protection and awareness of the community in which they reside. Misdemeanors should not. Georgia has opened the discussion of the right to privacy by implementing such service, although, there is much to improve upon to balance the way it is used to ensure fairness to all.

      Great article ! Information is very useful. The online services for removing mugshots do work, but only for the websites that are not put up by the arresting agency. If the mugshot is on the site of the arresting agency, it will stay there. He should be concerned about more than the mugshots though. If an employer runs a background check, the arrest will show up unless there is an expungement ordered. It's important you make sure the company you work with has experience in removing different kinds of mugshots from different websites.

      I believe that if the crime you have committed is severe and you have been found guilty of the crime, then your mugshot should be visible. I believe this because it is the right of citizens to know this. However, if you were not found guilty or the crime was less than severe, then I believe that it should not be on the internet. And it is a great thing for there to be a service to help people like this to get their mugshot off the internet. Very interesting and informative article!

      I can see something like this coming in handy for folks with misdemeanors and small time stuff but I wouldn't necessarily want somebody who has done something really awful to be able to pull their picture down. If you weren't convicted of a crime though, your picture shouldn't be on there anyway, I should think but hey, it's Georgia, so, you never know.

      That is some very valuable information. A lot of people have made mistakes in their lives and have changed their lives around now. They do not want to have their mug shot listed for several years if it can be helped. I think some mug shots need to stay listed though, so people will know another persons background from the past even if they have changed now.

      @dinofab: I would agree, there is circumstances where having a mugshot online might be warranted, but typically it is not the case. A DUI or minor offense really doesn't deserve to have their mugshot plastered all over the Internet.

      I think this is both a good and bad idea. For one its totally embarrassing to have your face plasterd all over the internet for everyone to see that alone would make an individual make better choices. However sometimes in life you do make bad decisions that don't warrant having everyone know your business and this day and age employers are starting to google potenial employee's and seeing a mugshot for something silly you did could def. cost you a job.

      @allisonmitchellrogers: Hi Allison, the problem with this is a lot of the people who's mugshots end up online never even committed a crime. They were just booked for suspicion of committing a crime and then released. So while they are innocent of a crime, their mugshot remains on the Internet and they appear guilty.

      @slycat72: Hi Slycat, I agree. One of the unfortunate things about these public mugshots is the fact that many of the people who are put on the sites, especially georgia.arrests.org were never even convicted or charged. Often times the people are only booked and the charges are never filed yet their mugshot ends up all over the Internet.

      I have to agree with slycat72! You can never be too careful when it comes to safety. If you commit a crime then you need to pay the consequences and that means having your mugshot out there telling people of your crime. If you don't want your mugshot out there then think twice before committing a crime!

      I am really torn about being able to have this done in general.... I really think it should have to do with the crime itself, and how extreme it was... The worse the crime, I believe that it should be able to be located on the internet. When doing a people search for a potential "Love Match", "Employee", etc. These should ALWAYS stay visible on the internet,,, If it was a minor crime, the mugshots shouldn't even be on here.... Safety and Security are my biggest concerns, and in this day and age.... You Can Never Be To Careful!!!! All Pedophiles mugshots should remain accessible, since we let these "Monsters" out after what "Horrific" crimes they may have committed to these poor innocent children!!! I think we truly need to work on a law to NEVER let these animals out EVER!!!

      In this day and age the internet is so accessible and your name is out there on social networking sites. That leaves you open to anyone and everyone googling your name and finding your mug shot. I believe in privacy, even in cases of arrest. That should be something between yourself, and the officers of arrest, not for friends, family and strangers. I am fully in support of this mugshot removal program to save reputation and I'm glad that steps can be taken to improve our records.
