The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette has discontinued the Right2Know mugshot gallery and has taken down all previously published mugshots. For the past decade, the gallery has included photos, names and charges of people arrested in Pulaski, Garland and Saline counties. The decision was made in the interest of fairness and our commitment to upholding the highest journalistic standards.

Publishing the gallery presented a limited and potentially out-of-context view of the events surrounding the arrests. We have taken into account that people included in the gallery are presumed innocent and their inclusion does not indicate they have been convicted of the arrest charge. In addition, the gallery does not add value to our news product, as most arrests on Right2Know are for nonviolent misdemeanors that would normally not be included in the newspaper's regular news coverage.

The Democrat-Gazette will continue to report newsworthy arrests — stories that are important for public interest and safety reasons. We will include mugshots and photos when appropriate with relevant newsworthy stories, such as when police are searching for a suspect who may be dangerous or when a person is charged with a felony. When an individual with a public presence is arrested, their photo will be published.

Our Right2Know website will continue to showcase its Little Rock and North Little Rock homicide map, Little Rock crime map, and databases of salary information for government employees at the city, county and state levels.
