Menifee Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Menifee Public Records?

Menifee public records are records produced, kept, or used by public agencies in the city as required to perform their statutory duties. Under the CPRA, public records are writings, documents, electronic mails, audio recordings, video recordings, and all other methods of storing data, notwithstanding physical form, characteristics, or mode of transmission. The Public Records Act guarantees public access to most records in the custody of Menifee City government agencies. However, some government-generated records are barred from public disclosure. The following are a few examples:

  • Litigation or court records if the government agency is a party to the case. The agency may release these records after the court's final judgment
  • Examination data, including test questions and scoring templates. The CPRA states that such data should be restricted before the exam and remain private if the records are scheduled for future exams
  • Preliminary notes, drafts, and memoranda transferred within an agency, or between two or more agencies
  • Records that contain appraisals, estimates, and assessments of real estate, created or received for property acquisition or issuance of construction contracts. Records may become public after the agency awards the contract or acquires the property
  • All records that contain confidential medical information if the patient or legal guardian does not permit disclosure
  • Law enforcement investigative and intelligence records concerning active cases
  • Personnel files that constitute an unwarranted invasion of the individual’s privacy, except records of substantial allegations concerning an offense or wrongdoing committed by the person
  • Taxpayer information related to local tax collection if received in confidence. These records are exempt from public access if disclosure would cause an unfair competitive disadvantage to the person
  • Correspondence transferred within the Governor’s Office, including records from the Governor, and records kept in the custody of the Governor’s Legal Affairs Secretary. This does not cover records placed in the secretary’s custody to bypass the exemption
  • Library circulation records that identify borrowers or reveal materials received or maintained for exhibition or reference
  • Records in the custody of a licensing agency or submitted by an applicant, that reveal a person’s financial data or personal worth
  • Information on firearm license applications that reveal the applicant’s personal or family’s psychological history, vulnerability to attacks, or medical history

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.

All facilities enforce a strict dress code, which bars visitors from sexual, scanty, or otherwise inappropriate clothing. In addition, visitors must not bring alcohol, drugs, food, drinks, weapons, cameras, and other contraband items into the visiting area. Violators may lose their visiting privileges or be arrested.
