Scraping Harris County Arrest Records
I have a website where I provide free arrest records for the public. Data comes from TDCJ and Harris County websites and data dumps.
A combination of wget and a few lines of bash shell scripting and I’m download records and inserting them into a local MySQL database.
By scraping public records from Harris County, I am able to perform extensive analysis of the criminal activity in the county.
There are also added benefits and features that allows a person charged with a crime in Texas, the ability to execute different actions, get help, and link to additional resources.
Using Buckfumble is much easier, more intuitive and allows for more functionality than using the county website.
If you, a friend, family, loved one, or other person has been arrested in Harris County, visit my arrest and prison record website.
