The Office of Information Practices, OIP was created by the Legislature in 1988 and promotes open and transparent government in Hawaii. OIP administers both the Uniform Information Practices Act, UIPA which requires open access to government records and the Sunshine Law which requires open public meetings. Exceptions to the general rule include records which, if disclosed, would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. There are five major islands of Hawaii and four counties, all of which were created in 1905. There are no separately incorporated cities in the entire state. No formal level of government exists below that of the county in Hawaii. Criminal history records are provided online by the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center.

Q: i need a copy of a grant deed
by william
A:The recorder or clerk of the county in which the deed is recorded should make deeds within their area available to request by the public. You can begin with looking up the county's webpages for services relating to document requests or office of the clerk. Deeds are commonly requested, professional entities that request high volumes have access to the data readily available to them. That is not the case for individuals, so the process is lengthier for the general public.

Q: What are the income classes in the town?
by Birdy
A:Smaller areas may not have this information. You can come up with your own average by looking up home prices and then averaging what the income for the home prices are. You can check the going rate for apartments also. It is not a sure science but can give you an idea. You can see the similar living expenses in an area that the census bureau has collected data.

Q: arrest record for Ryan Whisler
by Ryan
A:Here's a link to Hawaii police departments where you can request police records http://www.hawaiipolice.com/contact-us/police-stations. Arrest records are considered public information unless the case is under investigation or other exceptions. If this arrest is going to trial, most courts offer a free case calendar search. Whether any of the searches are offered online or not is up to the department. The state of Hawaii does not have one of the better open record policies when compared to other states, so there will be challenges on how easy it is to obtain information, even if the record is deemed public record.

Q: The state of Hawaii is not amongst states where public records are easy to obtain. This state is concerned with the individual privacy over the public's right to records. In this case, criminal records. There are several methods in which to obtain criminal or background information of a person, depends which service or approach is being used. The state offers a service for the public https://ecrim.ehawaii.gov/. Regardless of which city you're in this source allows the public to request criminal history of an individual that has a previous record in Hawaii. This search is one of the least expensive ones that I've found and can be used to check your own records.

A:Salaries of government employees/officials are considered public information. The county’s government website http://www.kauai.gov/Government/Departments/PersonnelServices/tabid/60/Default.aspx is a good place to start. This page http://www.kauai.gov/Kamaaina/JobOpportunities/FAQs/tabid/487/Default.aspx shows qualifications and the pay of county personnel. Not the same as a direct salary search, however it’s a good place to start, the main page has a pay and classification section.

Q: Does Hawaii have background checks that can be ordered online?
by art1
A:Anyone can access Hawai'i's Adult Criminal Information site also referred to as eCrim. This database allows the public to find criminal convictions based on a person's name, date of birth and gender if known. This criminal history check is provided by the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center and results can be viewed or requested for a certified copy of the record for a cost of $15 as of this post. This may not satisfy some as a complete background check. More complete searches would would include marriage, lawsuits which include dissolution of marriages, real estate records or any other public record an entity deems necessary for a full background check.

Q: can i find out what properties are owned by name
by chris
A:Property records are available to the public due to state and federal laws. However, some privacy issues involving individuals' personal information being released when providing records has placed several safeguards to protect the public. Along with the safeguards, many records can still be accessed to some extent. The Hawaii county real property tax office is a useful resource if you are looking in that area. Other counties may have similar services. Tax office is to provide information and access to real property assessments, mapping of property within the county and tax procedures for property owners. The information is usually updated once per week. The property search can be conducted based on two different methods. You can enter the address, parcel name or a search allowing various search criteria.
