Virginia Public Records Resources & Searches

The Virginia Public Records Act, passed in 1975, allows access to the documents and records of the public agencies tasked with the operation of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Records are required to be properly maintained by the individual agencies involved, with the head of the agency having direct responsibility for official records in the absence of a specifically appointed Records Officer. The Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Advisory Council is a state agency whose duties include resolving disputes with citizens over Freedom of Information issues, the initial presumption being that all Commonwealth documents are open to the public. One of the thirteen original colonies, Virginia achieved statehood on June 25, 1788. The 8 million residents live in either one of 39 cities, numerous unincorporated towns, or hundreds of unincorporated communities which make up the 95 counties. Richmond is the capital city, with Virginia Beach taking honors as the most populous. With it's close proximity to the nation's capital, many Virginia residents are employed by federal agencies or government contractors.

Virginia Public Records: Latest Questions and Answers
Q: Where do Virginia businesses get them employees' background checked?
by john stone

Q: What area is worst in drug trafficking
by hilliary1
A:There are two ways to look up areas under and see the types of crimes occurring. One is the crime maps that are freely available online, note that not all areas are included. The other are the recent arrests. There are certain times when drug activity picks up and their arrests follow. Also, there are published reports of sweeps. This is when a joint effort from law enforcement is executing warrants for arrest or search. The agency will release reports for the media, online, tv or their own site's press release.

Q: how do i find out if i have a criminal back round? (Virginia)
by chuppacabra

Q: recently I requested public court records from Loudoun County, VA General District Court - these records were from a misdemeanor criminal case from 1995. The Clerk of the Court of Loudoun County wrote to me: that per Code ofVA 16.2-69.57, records more than 10 yrs old are expunged. I looked the Code up and it should be 16.1 not/not 16.2 AND they stated that per Title 37.2 civil records more than 10 years old are purged. Is this true? by purged does the Court mean that they are destroyed and no longer can be accessed?
