Fayette County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Fayette County Public Records?

The Pennsylvania Right-To-Know-Law describes Fayette County public records as records that contain details of an agency's activities or transactions. Under the law, public records Fayette County agencies generate or maintain should be open to disclosure regardless of characteristics or physical form. These records may include a document, letter, paper, photograph, sound recording, tape, file, or other information stored electronically.

Although it ensures public access, the Right-To-Know Law states that some records should be considered confidential and therefore closed to the general public. Some examples of exempt records include:

  • Records with information that could cause loss of state or federal funds if disclosed
  • Records containing law enforcement, national defense, homeland security, military or general public safety information, if disclosure could threaten public safety, preparedness, or protection
  • Records classified by state or federal military authority
  • Records where disclosure would cause a demonstrable or substantial risk of physical harm
  • Records where disclosure could jeopardize the safety or physical security of a building, public utility, or infrastructure
  • Information containing an individual’s psychological, psychiatric, or medical history, or disability status. These include details of a consultation, evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, or prescription
  • Records that contain personal identification information on any individual. These include a social security number, personal financial information, driver's license number, and phone numbers. Other examples are employee numbers, a spouse's or dependent's information, and a judge or law enforcement officer's home address. The exemption does not consider a public official's name, salary, position, payments, or employment contract. Agencies may make records available to the public after redacting confidential parts.
  • The draft of an agency’s bill, resolution, regulation, management directive, or statement of policy
  • Trade secrets or confidential proprietary information which derives potential or actual economic value from its scarcity or unavailability
  • All personal working papers or notes prepared for or by a public official or agency if created for personal use or without an official purpose
  • Records of a criminal investigation, including complaints, investigative materials, the identity of a victim, a confidential source, or suspect, or any record that could deprive a person of their right to a fair trial
