How can I find inmate mugshots in California?
If you or someone you know has been to jail or prison before, you may be concerned about the availability of their mugshot. Mugshots can be an embarrassing thing for others to find, and can be used to blackmail others by nefarious people.
Unfortunately, it’s very easy to obtain a California inmates mugshot. Many blackmailers will go through the government to acquire these mugshots, or simply visit a county police stations website to look for it.
However, sometimes it can be more difficult for blackmailers to obtain a mugshot. If it is, they’ll go through an online public records database.
What is an online public records database?
An online public records database is a compilation of public records from around the US(not just California). Websites like SpyFly can be used to find arrest records, warrants, and even mugshots. All you need to begin searching is the full name of the person you’re searching for, and results should be popping up immediately.
If you’re interested in finding your own mugshot, you can begin browsing SpyFly immediately. You don’t need anything other than a device that can access an internet browser to start. This means that SpyFly can be used wherever you are.
Is it legal for me to have someone else’s mugshot?
Yes. Mugshots are part of a criminal record, as well as an arrest record. Both of these items are deemed matters of public record, and any American citizen is allowed to have any other citizens mugshot.
Public records are a tricky thing. Your driving history, your criminal record, and most court proceedings you’re involved in are matters of public record, as well as many other aspects of your life. Moreover, these things are true for every citizen of the US. If you’d like, it’s perfectly legal to use SpyFly to research someone else’s past. Luckily, with SpyFly your research is completely anonymous.
Can I remove my mugshot from the public record?
Yes. If your conviction has been expunged, then your criminal record must be reviewed, and the mugshot connected to that conviction will no longer be considered valid. As such, you can contact any websites that possess your mugshot and inform them of the changes to your conviction.

Federal laws prohibit businesses from using SpyFly’s service to make decisions about employment, insurance, consumer credit, tenant screening, or for any other purpose subject to the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 USC 1681 et seq.
