    Answered . Your record my show an arrest, however, anyone can be arrested for anything, so your record is for all intents and purposes clean. Your arrest should not prevent you from visiting any prison or jail.

    Answered . A book and release will show up on your criminal record even if the DA never charged you with anything. Of course your rap sheet will show that you were not charged so I doubt this will interfere with your security clearance.
