Graham County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Graham County Public Records?

According to the Arizona Public Records Law, Graham County public records are documents and materials that pertain to official activities of government officials and agencies created while carrying out work in their official capacity. Graham County public records may be tape recordings of meetings, presentations and reports, legal memoranda, policies and procedures, accident reports, training videos and materials, personnel information, case files, and databases. Any person who is wrongfully denied access to public records may bring an action against the officer or public body for any damages resulting from the denial.

Not all Graham County records are publicly available. Exempted records include:

  • Student records;
  • Research records;
  • Records where disclosure would constitute an invasion of personal privacy and that invasion outweighs the public’s right to know;
  • Adoption records;
  • Disciplinary records of some professional groups;
  • Some medical records;
  • Some corrections department records;
  • Bank records; and trade secrets.

In addition to government agencies, some public records may also be accessible from third-party websites. These non-government platforms come with intuitive tools that allow for expansive searches. Record seekers may either opt to use these tools to search for a specific record or multiple records. However, users will need to provide enough information to assist with the search, such as:

  • The name of the subject involved in the record (subject must be older than 18 or not juvenile)
  • The address of the requestor
  • A case number or file number (if known)
  • The location of the document or person involved
  • The last known or current address of the registrant

Third-party sites are not sponsored by government agencies. Because of this, record availability and results may vary.
