Public Records Request
Public Records Request

A public record is a record that is reasonably necessary or appropriate for us to keep in order to maintain an accurate knowledge of our official activities. ARS § 39–121.01(B). Before making your request, please note the following:

  • Any request for documents that are readily available on our website will result in a referral to our website.
  • Arizona law does not allow us to release most records related to financial institutions and financial enterprises, certain financial records, insurance claim files, or an individual's private information, such as their social security number, birth date, driver’s license number, or medical records. 
  • Records or parts of records that are not subject to public disclosure under Arizona law and will not be disclosed in response to a public records request.
  • Records that are subject to disclosure, but which contain information that is private or confidential, will require redaction, meaning that the non-releasable portions of the document will be removed or otherwise obscured so that it cannot be read.

If your request is for records that are publicly available, you will be directed to the source of the record so that you can inspect and make your own copies.  Below are links to some of the most readily available records.
