My mostly non-Italian speaking family found an old family members possible arrest record.

Can anyone translate this image to English? We're mostly looking for what the arrest was for and any other important information.

I know the cursive may be very hard to read...

This was not an arrest record but a request for disclosure of your relative’s criminal record, where results that he had nothing preceding the date of request.

Also nowadays when you’re applying for a job you’re requested to provide, along with many other certifications, this document which states your criminal record.

The document can be roughly translated like this:

Criminal record

Public Prosecution Service attached to the Cosenza District Court

At the name of (your relative’s name) Di fu (your relative father’s name) di fu (your relative mother’s name) birth on 19/11/1917 in Cosenza following the request issued by (unreadable) to be used for every appropriate purpose we certify that his criminal record contains
September 17, 1948
