Greene County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Greene County Public Records?

Per the Pennsylvania Right to Know Act, Greene County public records include all records produced or received by a public officer pertaining to public business. Public records can be in any form, including a document, paper, letter, map, book, tape, photograph, film or sound recording, electronic document, and data- or image-processed document.

The Pennsylvania Right to Know Act highlights 30 public record exemptions, i.e., records barred from public access. Examples include:

  • Records related to the military, homeland security, national defense, law enforcement, or other public safety activity
  • Records about computer hardware, software, and networks that may endanger computer security if disclosed
  • Records of an individual's medical, psychiatric or psychological history or disability status
  • Social security numbers, financial information, and other confidential personal identification numbers
  • Records related to an employee of a government agency
  • Records about labor relations or collective bargaining
  • Academic transcripts
  • DNA and RNA records
  • Records containing the name, home address, or date of birth of a child (17 years or younger)

In addition to government agencies, some public records may also be accessible 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. However, users will need to provide enough information to assist with the search such as:

  • The name of the subject involved in the record (subject must be older than 18 or not juvenile)
  • The address of the requestor
  • A case number or file number (if known)
  • The location of the document or person involved
  • 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.

Anyone interested in sex offender information in Greene County can search the state's registry using the name, address, birth date, or arrest details of a sex offender.
