Alabama Public Records

The Alabama State Records mission is to grant every person the right to detect, obtain, preview and examine state public records in accordance with Alabama’s Public Records Law. This legislation cites that all public records are presumed to be available to all public citizens for investigation: National Association of Counties.

The main goal is to enable all members of the general public the right to access Alabama state public records easily, efficiently and concisely and without the requester having to specify a “need to know” or reveal any sensitive personal information, unless the law has expressively stated otherwise.

Alabama State Records maintains information about the following publicly available records: Criminal Records, Court Records, Vital Records and State Background Checks, as well as over 45 million transparent public records, granting the available information access a lawful, controlled and organized context.

The search functionality granted in this portal enables the requested information to be presented immediately and accurately. Alabama State Records contains information dating back to the year 1908, consisting of records from67 counties, thereby ensuring that Alabama abides by the commitment of the United States of America to remain a “fair and just” society for all.
