Avondale Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Avondale City Public Records?

Avondale City public records are non-confidential documents created, maintained, or stored by government agencies. They are generally created in connection with public business or government activities. Public records exist in various forms, such as photographs, audio files, video files, handwriting, or typewriting. Some records are exempt from being public records. These records are usually confidential and are closed either in accordance with a law or a court order. Examples of exempt Avondale City public records include:

  • Personnel files containing the home address or home telephone of certain persons such as former public officials, peace officers, judges, justices, spouses or minor children of deceased peace officers, and public defenders. This information should only be disclosed if the record subject consents in writing to the release or if the record custodian determines that disclosing the record will not pose a risk to the record subject.
  • Records containing the identity of a witness to a crime unless:
    • The witness consents to the disclosure of the record in writing
    • A court orders the disclosure
    • The crime occurred at the victim's house.
  • Documents containing records of the location of archaeological discoveries or that are of historical relevance. The record custodian may refuse to disclose such documents if they determine that it might be at risk of vandalism.
  • Records of risk assessments performed by or on behalf of a federal agency to evaluate critical energy, water, or telecommunications infrastructure to determine its vulnerability to sabotage or attack.
  • Records relating to the construction of wireline telecommunications infrastructure, including the location of lines, equipment, and plants used for telecommunications services on or along public streets or highways.

Public city records may also be accessible from third-party websites. Record seekers may opt to use these non-governmental platforms to search for a specific document or multiple city records. However, users will need to provide enough information to assist with the search, such as:

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

Government agencies do not sponsor third-party sites. Because of this, record availability and results may vary.
