Public Records Requests

All records maintained by state and local agencies are available for public inspection unless law specifically exempts them. You are entitled to access to public records under reasonable conditions, and to copies of those records upon paying the costs of making the copy. In most cases, you do not have to explain why you want the records. However, specific information may be necessary to process your request. An agency may require information necessary to establish if disclosure would violate certain provisions of law.

Listed below are links to documents that will assist you in completing a request. If you have any questions beyond the scope of the information contained in the brochure, please contact our Public Records Officer at 360-452-9771, or via e-mail at
