Public Records and Request:

VAC archived hard copy records are available for public inspection during regular office hours except when in immediate use by persons exercising official duties which require the use of those records. The person in charge of such records may require a notice in writing to be submitted 24 hours prior to inspection and may require that such notice specify which records are to be inspected. Nothing in this Section shall require units of local government and school districts to invade or assist in the invasion of any person's right to privacy. (P.A. 102-356, eff. 1-1-22.)

Many records are already posted online via other County Departments, so please visit the appropriate department to see if the records sought are not already available and that request is going to the correct Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Officer.
