Humboldt County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Humboldt County Public Records?

According to the CPRA, Humboldt County public records comprise information related to the conduct of public business. These records include information prepared, used, retained, or owned by any local or state agency and are open to public disclosure regardless of characteristics or physical form. The CPRA also states that public records may be information contained in handwritten or typewritten documents, photographs, electronic mail, fax, and other data storage means. Although California law provides residents with access, it exempts some records from its public disclosure rule. Some exempt records include:

  • Preliminary notes, drafts, or memoranda transferred within or outside the agency
  • Records of pending litigation if the public agency is a party or has laid related claims. These records must remain closed to the public until the conclusion of the case
  • All medical, personnel, or related files if disclosure would be an unnecessary invasion of an individual’s personal privacy
  • Records of investigations, complaints, security procedures, or intelligence information compiled by any law enforcement agency for licensing, correctional, or law enforcement purposes
  • Exam data, including test questions and scoring keys, used for an academic, licensing, or employment examination
  • Real estate appraisals, engineering estimates, and feasibility evaluation records related to property acquisition, property construction, or supply contracts until the acquisition or established agreement of such a contract
  • Records that contain the phone number or home address of public defenders, prosecutors, judges, peace officers, and magistrates
  • Applications for the supervision or regulation of securities issuance or financial institutions
  • Tax information received in confidence if disclosure would be an unfair competitive disadvantage to the person that provided the information
  • All records exempted from public disclosure by state or federal law

In addition to official sources, public county records may also be accessible from third-party websites. Record seekers may opt to use these non-governmental platforms to search for a specific record or multiple county 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.
