About Idaho Public Record Searches

The Idaho Legislature affirmed the state's commitment to open government by enacting it's Public Records Law in 1990. The law protects each citizen's right to monitor the actions of state and local government entities by providing access to governmental records. Requests for public documents are handled by the individual public agencies which maintain the documents being sought. There are certain exceptions which include but are not limited to juvenile records, law enforcement investigations and court records that would result in the release of confidentiality. The state of Idaho has 44 counties and 1,242 populated places including cities, towns, neighborhoods, subdivisions and settlements. There are 200 incorporated cities. The Idaho state police Bureau of Criminal Identification is the criminal history repository.

  • Question: How do you file a complaint about a judge

    Isn't a judge under the same rules as any other attorney? Is it an ethics violation? A violation procedure?

    I know this question is a long time ago this year, but I want to answer this as I have, in the past, had to fire a public defender. You file your complaint against a prosecutor or a judge through the same as you would fire your public defender. Start by calling the court clerks office and asking, they will have a specific address that you must send your letter, complaint, to for review and to be on actual record or file. Then you write the letter with your complaint or complaints and mail it to the address the court clerk gives you, and bam. It;s done, complaint filed put on record. I was unsure how to fire a public defender, but I knew that you could and there was a way, so I just called the clerk once and they told me. I even requested a new defender in the same letter and ended up with a damn good one. Hope that you found a way back when you asked, but this information is from my experience in the past. Best wishes and I really do hope you were able to get it all taken care of before now.

    Which county? If it’s in Ada county, you’re in luck, the search can be done online through their sheriffs website. There are other counties such as Kootenai and Bonner that offer open online searches. You can use the Idaho State Judiciary, Idaho Supreme Court Data Repository website to check for summons/appearances. All counties are included except for Twin Falls. Warrants are issued by the courts, all of them should have it, but not necessarily displayed online.

    With some departments, if you are related to the case/incident, the copy of the report can be free of cost. Police reports are provided by the department's records division, which you can look up on their site for how to contact them.

  • Question: Does the Idaho State Police release arrest records for a fee?
    By anonymous
    Jan 27, 2015

    Arrest reports/crash reports from the ISP have fees. Some departments make an exception for people that are directly related to the report. You need to know which department made the arrest. If the ISP made the arrest, their records division should have a report. However, if the report was taken by a local department, that individual department needs to be contacted. This is not to say that the police itself can not access it remotely, but for others, that particular agency needs to be contacted. Many police reports have online forms and request procedures to follow.
