I. For the purposes of this section, an "arrest record" means a record created by law enforcement personnel to document the arrest of an individual 17 years of age or older. Arrest records are "governmental records" as defined in RSA 91-A and subject to disclosure in accordance with that chapter, with the exception noted in RSA 106-B:14.
II. Arrest records shall contain, at a minimum:
(a) The identity of the individual arrested;
(b) The identity of the arresting officer or officers unless the officer's supervisor has good cause to believe that identifying the officer would not serve the public interest;
(c) A statement as to reasons why and how the arrest was made;
(d) The alleged crime; and
(e) Whether the arrest was made pursuant to a warrant.
