About Arizona Open Public Records
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. The Arizona Department of Public Safety provides criminal history searches from the central repository. Search for Arizona state, city and county open public records online.

  • Where in Arizona can I get arrest reports from a specific 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 person.
  • 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 regions such as Maricopa, but the county's judicial branch has the warrants list in Mohave. 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.
  • Where can I find in Arizona a copy of a police report made on July 23, 2015?
    There are restrictions to obtaining official police reports from the arresting department. Whichever county the arrest took place is where the report can be found. Crime mapping, which you can easily find online, can help locate where arrests have occurred and which department made the arrest. Crime mapping does not cover all areas and departments, but since it is an open free search, it's worth a quick try. Finding public records is about looking them up where they are, as they are scattered all over the net. Public records are generally provided by government agencies that do not have strong incentives to incur business; they tend to offer services to satisfy the law and public requests, not marketed to attract new customers. Fortunately, many government sites see the value in online services, saving them time and staff. There may be few departments, or in some cases, just one public entity with the official report you are looking for. However, if you are solely seeking information for personal use, you can look to unofficial or government sites such as reports in periodicals.
  • Where can I find, in Arizona, a list of convicted murderers?
    You can look up different sources, depending on how much work you are willing to do. You can begin by looking up the statistics of a particular area to get an idea of how many you are looking for, as there are various categories of homicides and severity. Another issue is the period of the arrests or convictions, is the information for the past year six months? Ten years? The Arizona department of corrections has a free public database that reveals active and inactive inmates. The data also shows supervised or paroled individuals and absconders (escapees). Periodicals/newspapers publish daily or weekly arrests to the public, and crimes such as homicide are often reported by local news.
  • Where can I find in Arizona, mugshots of individuals with active warrants for their arrest?
    A large number of the warrants are from county courts/judges, which means county levels. There are only fifteen counties in Arizona, therefore checking each individually will not take long. The county sheriff websites have a free public view of their inmates and warrants. Maricopa county has their warrants and inmates on separate pages with open searches. There are warrants which can be from courts other than county level.
  • Where can I find in Arizona, a birth/death certificate on stillborn birth?
    Certificates are available from local county health department Office of Vital Records or online. The website for birth certificates are the same. The certified copies are available to parents listed on the record or an individual authorized by the parent, either one or both. Copies are around 20 dollars.
  • Where can I find in Arizona, information on a July 1, 2015, court date?
    Courts have a calendar of their events/appearances which are updated regularly. These are released by the court directly, usually from the clerk's office. Many of the court dates can be found readily available online. Which court was hearing the case? Arizona's judicial branch's website can help in finding which court with a venue locator query listing each county. Within each county, there will a breakdown of the various courts that you can view, criminal, civil, family and probation, juvenile and others. If you are not able to locate the particular court's calendar, simply put the county and the keyword 'calendar', you will see a list on serps. Fortunately, there are only fifteen counties in Arizona, so checking each one will not take as long as many other states, so if you don't know the county, you may have to spend some time checking them. If the keyword 'court calendar' is not working on your serps, try the terms 'docket' or 'court docket' along with the county name.
  • Where can I find in Arizona, how long before a DUI can be redacted, removed from records available to public?
    Having your record redacted and having it removed from public view are two different issues that are addressed separately. How to redact your current record has a process which is sometimes spelled out on various judicial websites based on the location. The process depends on the court, so for one to know specifically, you'd have to look into that particular court's rules. Removing that information from public view is not automatic after the record is redacted. Your record may have circulated and is already in the "internet world". Since people looking for records don't care if it's old, they are still interested in retrieving the information. This poses a serious challenge for many that have expunged records to clear their past. There are private services which look to find your information and try to correct it. Or you can do it yourself. Many sites which provide public records with have instructions and even the form to remove you from their data. You may have to show proof or go through a process in order to remove yourself from their data in efforts to curtail fraudulent attempts in removing legitimate information. Your record may have a life of it's own. Public record providers which you find may not be the only place which your information may appear. New sites pop up without notice which can also have the information from an older database. You may need to be pro-active in looking and removing your information for a long time to come. The amount of work, time and expense it will take to remove personal data and its success depends on each individual case. Fortunately, a lot of the looking and work can be done online at home. The purpose is important also, for employment screening, background checks are a main concern, while reputation of an independent contractor can be based on information found outside a typical background search.
  • Where can I find in Arizona, why someone was arrested and where it happened?
    You can look up the arresting law enforcement's site, whether police or sheriffs departments. Many law enforcement sites will have an inmate search or jail/custody list of persons recently arrested. Some jail lists also known as booking information can go back a week or more. Law enforcement departments also have procedures in which the public can request official arrest reports. Their website will show how to make the request as well as provide the forms online and where to submit them. These records are considered public information, there are exceptions, but many individuals, attorneys and others request this type of record. Much of the data found online inmate searches would not show the same as requesting an arrest report. The information with an online query may suffice and the full arrest report may not be necessary. Using online inmate query can show arrest date, place, charges, custody status, photo in some instances and more.
  • Where can I find in Arizona a list of fatal accidents in January 2013?
    The city or county where the accident occurred may have a law enforcement website. Within that website, look for the press releases tab or links. Depending on where you are looking, the city police or county sheriff's office can have this information readily available. After that, look for a local news organization in the area of the occurrence. Statistics can also be found under annual reports from certain agencies.
  • Where can I find in Arizona, the length of time, arrest reports and records can be withheld from an inmate waiting for a court hearing, because of an ongoing investigation?
    Are you requesting an official police/arrest report? The police agency which has the report most likely has a webpage about steps on how to get a report and its exceptions/guidelines. You can check that first to see whether they're outside of their own policies.
  • 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. Some sites show a person's work profile, but persons themselves voluntarily offer that.
  • 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 sheriff's office). Which area was the arrest in? Has the case been filed in court? There's a free online case search if you follow the "Arizona Court Records" link at the top of this page (second link). There's a case with a 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 Arizona's judiciary.
  • 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 lookup; 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 a way to determine if you have the right person. If the name you're searching for is common, you will need help narrowing down and pinpointing the right person before requesting public records and providing past addresses and words that come up under it.
