The Criminal Justice Commission of Palm Beach County believes that making public records easily accessible is an important part of keeping our operations transparent to the community we serve.
What are Public Records?
Chapter 119 of the Florida Statutes defines 'Public Records' to mean all documents, papers, letters, maps, books, tapes, photographs, films, sound recordings, or other material, regardless of physical form or characteristics or the means of transmission, made or received pursuant to law or ordinance or in connection with the transaction of official business by any agency. Chapter 119 provides that public records must be open to inspection by 'any person' with the exception of those designated exemptions detailed in Chapter 119 and other state statutes.
