Folsom Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Folsom Public Records?

The California Public Records Act classifies Folsom public records as all physical or digital data created, received, stored, re-created, or updated by a government agency concerning a public activity. Under state law, public records include memoranda, notes, books, maps, photographs, videotapes, audio files, symbols, building plans, and other data in a public agency's custody. However, public agencies have the right to prevent the disclosure of documents that may violate an individual's personal privacy. In some cases, the agency may restrict access to confidential records to only the record subject and other authorized persons or entities. Generally, the California Open Records Act exempts the following documents from public view:

  • Attorney-client communications;
  • Personnel data and similar files, such as salary information and investigations of employee misconduct (if the charges are untrue after due investigations);
  • Architectural and official building plans;
  • Criminal offender information;
  • Medical records;
  • Voters’ registration information, such as email address, home address, and other identifying information;
  • Information about attorney-client privilege;
  • Law enforcement agencies’ investigatory files and procedures;
  • Preliminary notes, drafts, inter or intra-agency memoranda which are not used or retained by a public agency in decision-making;
  • Minutes of the meeting of public entities closed to the public;
  • Voted registration information containing a voter's email address, home address, and phone number;
  • Public documents containing information about the identity of informants in a law enforcement investigation;
  • Information security records that may reveal vulnerabilities to a public agency's information technology system;
  • Juvenile records and information are compiled by law enforcement agencies;
  • Trade secrets or negotiations filed with a public agency for licensing purposes;
  • Data about pending litigation that involves a public agency or entity.

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
