What are Irvine Public Records?

The California Public Records Act states that public records are materials that contain information relating to the conduct of the public’s business. Public records are created or maintained by any state or local agency regardless of physical form or characteristics. The following are exemptions to records available to the public:

  • Preliminary drafts, notes, or interagency or intra-agency memoranda that are not retained by the public agency in the ordinary course of business
  • Personnel, medical, or similar files
  • Geological and geophysical data, plant production data, and similar information relating to utility systems development, or market or crop reports.
  • Operating and condition reports prepared by, on behalf of, or for the use of, any state agency
  • Security procedures of the office of the Attorney General and the Department of Justice

In addition to official sources, 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 record or multiple city records.

  • 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.
