Dear Mr. Marvis,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Depending on the time period and location you are interested in, you may need to search in various places for the information you are looking for.
If you are interested in federal records, we suggest that you use the National Archives Catalog to search for relevant records. You can use the Advanced Search features to narrow your results by time period, type of record, and more. You may need to use a variety of keywords or search terms to find the most helpful results, and if you can provide us with more specific information about your research (e.g. dates, locations, type of information you’re seeking), then we may be able to provide more assistance.
We also suggest that you search newspapers or news websites. If you are interested in non-current resources, the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America site provides information about and access to numerous historical newspapers. Many public libraries, state or local historical societies, and universities also hold collections of newspapers and magazines that might be useful for your search. You may wish to contact a librarian or archivist at an institution near you to see if they can offer more assistance. You might also locate some relevant resources using WorldCat.
If you are interested in police reports or statistics, then we suggest that you contact local, county, or state law enforcement agencies to learn more about accessing their records. City or state government record offices might also be able to offer you some assistance.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
