Lodi Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Lodi City Public Records?

In accordance with the California Public Records Act, Lodi public records include any writing that a state or local agency receives or prepares that relates to its activities. The physical form or characteristics of the document does not affect its nature as a public record. Therefore, public records may be electronic files, audio, photographs, typewritten, video recordings, or handwritten.

Some records that concern the activities of state or local agencies may not be subject to disclosure, especially in cases where they are confidential. Records that are closed to the public in Lodi include:

  • Information about individuals paid by the state to provide in-home supportive services pursuant to the Welfare and Institutions Code. California Government Code 6253.2.
  • Preliminary drafts, notes, and memoranda that are not retained by the government agency in the course of carrying out its activities, if the public interest in nondisclosure overrides disclosure. California Government Code 6254(a).
  • Records of pending litigation that a public agency is a party to until the case has been settled. California Government Code 6254(b).
  • Personnel, medical, and other similar files that would breach an individual’s right to privacy if disclosed. California Government Code 6254(c).
  • Applications filed with a state agency serving as a regulator or supervisor in the issuance of securities or of financial institutions. California Government Code 6254(d).
  • Records of investigations by a law enforcement agency. California Government Code 6254(f).
  • Examination records used for an academic exam, a licensing exam, or examination for employment. California Government Code 6254(g).
  • Information collected from taxpayers that is received in confidence and would cause unfair competitive disadvantage if disclosed. California Government Code 6254(i).
  • Any other record that is exempted pursuant to California Government Code 6254 and 6255, by court order, or by any other state or federal law.

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

Third-party sites are not sponsored by government agencies. Because of this, record availability and results may vary.
