About California Open Public Record

The California Public Records Act, CPRA was a law passed by the California State Legislature in 1968 requiring inspection and or disclosure of governmental records to the public upon request, unless exempted by law. The CPRA is similar to the Freedom of Information Act, except for the fact that "the people have the right of access to information concerning the conduct of the people's business" is enshrined in Article 1 of the California Constitution due to California Proposition 59 known as the Sunshine Amendment. Exemptions to the CPRA are narrowly construed and the public agency bears the burden of proving that an exemption applies. Exemptions under the CPRA are set forth under Section 6254 and are specific as to certain records or types of records. California obtained statehood on September 9, 1850. California is divided into 58 counties which include 482 incorporated cities and towns, of which 460 are called cities and 22 are called towns. California is the third largest state in the country with the largest population. A California public records directory shows which agencies provide specific data. Criminal history reports may be obtained from the California Department of Justice. Navigate through California courts, state and local departments and request records directly.

  • How does a person finds out which service an employer orders criminal history check from?
    You may not need to know which background checks the employer uses if you use the one from the state that requires fingerprints. Some individuals looking for work may think that the police department is a place where you order a background check, which can be true, but as good as this source may be, it probably only covers that area, not the entire state. The state of California's justice department offers fingerprint based background checks.

  • How do I get a copy of my divorce finalization?
    Divorce decrees are requested from the superior court in the county where the divorce was filed. The certificate of record for divorces between 1962 and June 1984 from the California department of public health does not say whether the divorce was ever finalized in court or not. The CDPH gives you links to both superior county courts and county recorders offices.
