How To Get Mugshots Removed – FREE!

How to remove mugshots from the internet for free in 2021.

Updated 12/06/2021.

The easiest way to remove your mugshot at no cost from any website online is to contact them. Provide them with a copy of your dismissal or expungement documents if you have them and are okay with providing that information to them. Some mugshot websites will remove your image from Google with this information alone.

1-844-684-7468 or 813-421-8334

Never use a mugshot removal company that advertises on a website publishing mugshots. If you do this your mugshot will reappear online on another website in hopes that you will again pay another fee for removal.

Submit your mugshot(s) for free removal by completing the form below.

How to get mugshots removed from Google.

Once an image is removed from a mugshot website you can send a request to Google to have the image taken out of the search results. This will also remove the mugshot website’s URL from the search results as well if it is also appearing. Use this link to submit a request to Google: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/removals.

This will get the mugshot deleted from Google’s search cache and stop it from appearing in search results. Google periodically updates the search cache when it revisits pages to check for updates. For those who are interested, you can use Google Webmaster Tools to manage your personal website and make it rank higher.

PublicPoliceRecord.com Removal also known as USBondsmen.com | BailBondsHQ.com | BailBondCity

Public police records.com is the latest iteration of a series of mugshot websites that have ranked really well in Google. They include Bailbondcity, Bailbondshq, USbondsmen, and now Publicpolicerecord.  This is one of the more prolific and difficult sites to remove images from either in a search result or from the website itself. But it is possible as we have suppressed images from every version of their website in Google and so have others who have followed our step guy step process.

Publicpolicerecords does have a page dedicated to removal which we have listed below. On their removal page, they explicitly list their opposition to mugshot removal laws citing the first amendment. They also request documentation be mailed via physical parcel for removal at the time of this post.

Mugshot Removal From Arrests.org

Arrests.org will remove your mugshot or amend your arrest page if you contact them directly. The form on their website is hidden from newer mugshots but we have the link and instructions below. 

Navigate to the page that contains your mugshot and copy the last 8 numbers in the URL. These 8 numbers are your unique identifier on their website.  Go to the link below and swap the 12345678 with your 8 digits and you will see a removal page appear for your image. Follow the instructions on that page for removal. If the charges were dropped, sealed, or expunged arrests.org states on its website that they will remove the image.  There is also an upload form to submit documentation as well. If you do not enter in the correct numbers from the page containing your image the removal page will generate an error. So be sure to properly copy the right number from the page containing your image.

How To Remove A Mugshot From The Georgia Gazette

Below are the categories which qualify an individual for free removal of his or her photograph:

On May 6, 2013, new Georgia legislation went into effect which requires that, if an individual meets certain criteria, the commercial website must remove his or her mugshot from the website at no charge and must do so within thirty (30) days of the date the individual sends a written request to the company.

1. Access to his or her case or charges was restricted pursuant to Code Section 35-3-37.

2. Prior to indictment, accusation, or other charging instruments, his or her case was never referred for further prosecution to the proper prosecuting attorney by the arresting law enforcement agency and the offense against such individual was closed by the arresting law enforcement agency.

3. Prior to indictment, accusation, or other charging instruments, the statute of limitations expired.

4. Prior to indictment, accusation, or other charging instruments, his or her case was referred to the prosecuting attorney but was later dismissed.

5. Prior to indictment, accusation, or other charging instruments, the grand jury returned two no bills.

6. After indictment or accusation, all charges were dismissed or nolle prossed.

7. After indictment or accusation, the individual pleaded guilty to or was found guilty of possession of a narcotic drug, marijuana, or stimulant, depressant, or hallucinogenic drug and was sentenced in accordance with the provisions of Code Section 16-13-2, and the individual successfully completed the terms and conditions of his or her probation; or

8. The individual was acquitted of all of the charges by a judge or jury.

To request the removal of the photograph, the individual must send written correspondence, including his or her name, date of birth, date of arrest, and the name of the arresting law enforcement agency. The request must be sent via certified mail, return receipt requested, or statutory overnight delivery to the registered agent, principal place of business, or the primary residence of the person who publishes the website.

If a company fails to remove the individual’s arrest booking photograph within 30 days, it is in violation of Georgia’s Fair Business Practices Act. To submit a complaint against a company that is in violation of this law, contact the Georgia Department of Law’s Consumer Protection Division.

Other Online Mugshot Removal Methods

Contact Google

Since Google is the most popular search engine, individuals may prefer to try to have Google suppress the mugshot. Google will remove search results for certain legal reasons. Additionally, it may remove personal information upon request if the information poses certain harm or risk to an individual. However, Google tends not to remove information that is already available to the public. But they will remove information that is outdated, inaccurate, or offline.


Use A Mugshot Removal Service

Certain companies advertise the ability to remove a mugshot. They charge a fee in order to have the mugshot removed. However, many of these companies work directly or indirectly for the website that originally published the mugshot. Therefore, paying the requested may only result in having it removed from a particular website. If the mugshot is public information, it can simply be republished to a different site.

RemoveMyMugshot.org uses special methods of manipulating search engine results so that the mugshot is not found within the search results preventing any mugshot or negative information from appearing in a search for your name.


Expunge Your Arrest Record(s)

Another option may be more difficult to accomplish but may yield greater results, which is the process of expunging or sealing your record. This process requires that the crime that you committed fall within the purview of the expungement law, which usually includes minor offenses, minor drug offenses, and other non-violent crimes. Expungement often requires that a certain amount of time has passed since the incident or conviction in which the defendant has not been convicted of any other criminal offenses.

This process usually requires the individual to file a petition with the court in which he or she asks for the arrest record and other records to be expunged or sealed. If the applicant is successful, this individual can send the order of expungement to the website that has published the mugshot. The website’s own rules may state that it will remove mugshots under such situations or the website may do so as a business practice that acknowledges that it would be preferable to remove a negative image of someone who has taken the steps to reduce this negativity.

However, some states do require that the website remove the mugshot when presented with this evidence, such as Florida. Additionally, the individual may ask for a court order that mandates that the mugshot be removed.
