In order to obtain public records, please complete an online Request for Information Form.
Please identify records you seek with reasonable particularity. Vague request, overbroad requests, or requests that contain no time parameters may be denied, delayed, or returned for further clarification. Your records request must be made on this form, not on an attachment to this form.
There is no fee for a records request. Typically, we send electronic copies of documents to the requestor’s email address as typed on the form. If you want to receive a printed copy of the document however, there may be a fee for printing and mailing. Please note that we are not able to produce large-format prints; we can print only on copy paper at a maximum size of 11x17 inches. We are unable to give you the original documents that we have on file, although these may be viewed in person at the DOCS office if they are available. By default, we will return the records by email. If you prefer to receive them by an alternate method, please let Staff know when sending the form back.
Turnaround time varies. Requests for recent records can often be processed in a few days, but records dating from the 1980s and earlier usually take a week or more for Staff to locate and scan. A request for a large number of records may take even longer.
If you have any questions, please contact the DOCS office at 317-571-2417
