How to find agencies to submit records requests

There are two ways to identify agencies that are responsible for public information requests you are searching for. The first is to type in search terms in the search box on the homepage or in the upper right-hand corner of any page. The second is to browse for agencies by category, which lets you filter them by State, County, Local or Law Enforcement.

How to submit records requests

On each agency page, there is at least one yellow button, labeled "Request Records" or "Search Records," to the right of the agency's contact information.

For the "Request Records" button, you'll be asked to enter details of your records request, such as your name, email address, phone number, specific record(s) you want, whether you want a copy of it or would like to inspect the public record, how much you'd be willing to pay to obtain a record, and when you expect to receive a response from the agency. This information will be entered into a prepared form letter, which will then be sent directly to the agency, with your email address as the reply contact. A copy will also be sent to you to keep for your records. AZ Public Info will not store or sell these emails or your information.

The "Search Records" button takes you to a form created by the agency you're requesting information from. It contains instructions on how to proceed.

On some agency pages, there is a "Notes" section. Please read this information carefully, as there may be specific instructions on how to obtain the records you're seeking.

What if I see a mistake?

On each page, you'll see a link that says, "Send a revision request." Clicking the link will create a new email to the Arizona Republic/ newsroom, and we'll investigate the report and get back to you, if desired.
