Hoover Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Hoover City Public Records?

Hoover City public records are documents that public agencies within the city receive, generate, maintain, or use containing details about the activities of the public agency. The form of the record is irrelevant. Therefore, Hoover City public records exist as handwriting, typewriting, audio, video, or electronic files. Public agencies are not obliged to provide records they do not have in their custody. Neither do they have to provide a public record in a form that differs from how they're maintained. However, the record should be provided to any requester within a reasonable time in accordance with Section 36-12-40 of the Alabama Code. This requirement only applies to public records and does not apply to records that are confidential or exempt. Records may be private either by law or by court order. Once these records are private, they are only available to qualified persons such as the subject of the record, law enforcement agents, any person qualified to access the record by law, and any person acting pursuant to a court order. Records that are closed to the public in Hoover City include:

  • Records that will pose a danger to security or cause danger to public safety or welfare if disclosed.
  • Pending criminal investigations.
  • Sensitive personnel records that would amount to a violation of privacy if disclosed.
  • Records that would serve the public interest in their non-disclosure.
  • Educational records, including records in university and college libraries.

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.
