About Arizona Open Public Record

Arizona's 'open state' public records law that has been in existence for over 100 years and mandates all public records be open to inspection. The Arizona Public Records Law is a series of statutes that describe public access to government information and that make government agencies accountable to the public by granting a right of access to records. There are some documents that are exempt from the public records law which include documents that would breach an individual's privacy or interfere in an ongoing investigation. Some examples of exemptions are research documents, student records, sealed court documents, medical records, and active criminal investigations. There are 15 counties in the state of Arizona and 91 incorporated cities and towns. The oldest, Tucson was incorporated in 1877 and the newest, Tusayan in 2010. Arizona's government is the state's largest employer with statewide and local agencies, various departments and divisions.

Ask Questions, About Arizona

  • Where in Arizona, can I get arrest reports from a certain year?
    The Arizona department of public safety's public records unit provides copies of offense, incident and arrest police reports. From their home page, there's a "Services" tab with a drop down menu, click on Public Services, then Records Requests. There is a list of various types of reports and how to get them by mail, fax, online or in person. (Staff)
  • Where can I find in Arizona, a free public listing of family members?
    You can get free information about the location and city of relatives from private services. It's similar to a reverse address look up, names that are associated with the address in public records will appear. The reason for the free listing is that it can be used as way to determine if you have the right person. If the name you're searching is common, you will need help in narrowing down and pin pointing the right person, before requesting public records, providing past addresses and names that come up under it. (Staff)
  • Where can I find in Arizona, what I'm being charged with?
    You can obtain police reports directly from departments (of the arresting police or sheriffs office). Which area was the arrest in? Has the case been filed in courts? There's a free online case search if you follow the link titled "Arizona Court Records" at the top of this page (second link). There's a case with the disposition date as recently as 9/24/2015. Check the coverage and it may not cover all criminal cases, but it is a great free search from the Arizona's judiciary. (Staff)
  • Where would I find in Arizona, a copy of someone's work history from 2005?
    Where would this information come from? Tax information is not public, therefore you would have to provide that information where it could go out to others. There are sites which show a person's work profile, but that is voluntarily provided by persons themselves. (Staff)
  • Where can I find out in Arizona, if there are any warrants for my arrest?
    There are only 15 counties in Arizona (unless you're looking in other states), you can go to the county webpages individually, look for the law enforcement agency for that area and enter their site to look for their warrants page, sometimes called fugitives, wanted or other similar names. This is true for areas such as Maricopa, but in Mohave the county's judicial branch has the warrants list. These pages aren't marketed to get customers, so finding them will take some looking. Make sure not to get the government sites confused with independent private sites. (Staff)
