Scottsdale Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Scottsdale Public Records?

In compliance with Arizona Public Records Law, Scottsdale public records are documents open to inspection from any interested person during business hours. Scottsdale public records may include books, papers, maps, letters, photographs, or other materials produced, used, retained, or prepared by the government during official duties. However, some Scottsdale public records are not available to the general public. Such documents are considered exemptions. Depending on the Arizona statute or court order, the whole or part of a document may be restricted or redacted. A record may be exempted from Scottsdale public records if it contains:

  • Information about a student's record
  • Private information about an individual
  • Certain research records
  • Information about an ongoing case or a pending case
  • Information that may pose security threats

Public city records may also be accessible from third-party websites. Record seekers may either opt to use these non-governmental platforms to search for a specific record 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

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