Hampden County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

Crime Numbers

Like other counties in Massachusetts, Hampden County only describes a geographical area and has no county government. It also does not have county-wide crime data but rather crime statistics for the cities and towns that make up the county. Hampden County seat is the City of Springfield. It is also the largest community in the county. Its crime data is representative of overall crime trend in the whole county.

In 2017, Springfield recorded 1,351 violent crimes and 4,594 property crimes. Compared to the 2013 totals for the city, these figures represent a 19.2% dip in violent crime rate and a 35.4% reduction in property crime rate. A closer look at Springfield's 2017 crime data shows that the Police Department recorded 14 murders, 73 rapes, 380 robberies, and 884 aggravated assaults. Reported incidences of property crimes include 1,183 burglaries, 2,902 larcenies, 509 motor vehicle thefts, and 37 arsons.

The five-year crime trend for Springfield shows that reports of all of these crimes declined between 2013 and 2017. Murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault rates fell by 36.4%, 18%, 36.5%, and 8.3% respectively. Similarly, burglary (49.9%), larceny (27.8%), motor vehicle theft (30.7%), and arson (33.9%) rates dipped significantly in the five-year period.

Criminal Records

The Department of Criminal Justice Information Services provides background checks for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It offers name-based and fingerprint-based criminal record checks. While the general public can request for named-based criminal history checks, fingerprint-based ones are for pre-approved agencies. Both options require users to register before accessing the service.
