Chambers County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Chambers County Public Records?

According to Section 41-13-1 of the Alabama Code, Chambers County public records include all records produced or received by a public officer as required by law to transact public business. The law specifies that public records may be papers, documents, maps, letters, and written, printed, or typed books.

Chambers County government agencies must allow requestors to access records not considered confidential or sensitive. However, state law provides some exemptions to the law on public access. Members of the general public cannot inspect or obtain copies of the following records:

  • Security records, including information on assessments, procedures, systems, or plans if public disclosure could negatively affect public safety or welfare
  • Circulation and registration records of college, public school, university, or public libraries
  • Subpoenas used for confidential proceedings under the Alabama Rules of Disciplinary Procedure
  • Information obtained by the Alabama Exchange Commission from an applicant
  • All sealed or exempted court records, including adoption records, juvenile matters, mental proceeding records, and criminal matters involving a sex offense if the victim is a minor
  • 911 audio recordings
  • Parts of records that disclose the identity of a confidential informant
  • Confidential hospital records
  • Birth records until 125 years after birth date
  • Death records until 25 years after death date
  • Case records of public welfare recipients or applicants
  • All records protected by law

In addition to government agencies, county public records may also be obtained 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. Users are able to search third-party websites remotely for multiple records at a time with just the name of the record subject and their last known location, including the city, county or state. Third-party sites are not sponsored by government agencies. Because of this, record availability and results may vary.
