Madera County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Madera County Public Records?

Madera County public records broadly consist of all records owned or generated during the course of public business by a state or local agency—as provided under the California Public Records Act. This includes handwritten notes, printed documents, and electronic emails. Records custodians may restrict access to some records if they contain information protected or exempted by a law or a court order. Some examples include documents or records that contain:

  • Private personal information, the revelation of which may constitute an invasion of personal privacy
  • Records of investigation or intelligence gathered by law enforcement officials
  • Protected taxpayer information and financial data submitted by residents
  • Details connected to a pending litigation

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

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