Mifflin County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Mifflin County Public Records?

The Pennsylvania Open Records Law defines Mifflin County public records as all data in writing or recording that are received, maintained, cataloged, and amended by public agencies in relation to a public activity or business. Public records in Mifflin County may exist as physical or digital files, such as books, maps, photographs, videos, audio recordings, charters, symbols, architecture plans, notes, minutes, memoranda, and emails. In compliance with the Open Records Law, all interested persons can request and access public records from public bodies. Nevertheless, the law restricts access to certain documents on the basis of confidentiality and safety. Generally, public agencies can redact or exempt information if it violates a record subject's right to privacy or safety. The following information is exempt under the Pennsylvania Open Records Law:

  • Expunged or sealed criminal information;
  • Medical records that may violate the privacy of the record subject;
  • Information about attorney-client privilege;
  • Law enforcement agencies’ investigatory files and procedures;
  • Government personnel data and similar files, such as salary information and investigations of employee misconduct (if the charges are untrue after due investigations);
  • Architectural and official building plans of government-owned facilities;
  • Voters’ registration information, such as email address, home address, and other identifying information;
  • Minutes of the meeting of public entities closed to the public;
  • Voted registration information containing a voter's email address, home address, and phone number;
  • Trade secrets or negotiations filed with a public agency for licensing purposes;
  • Public documents containing information about the identity of informants in a law enforcement investigation;
  • Information security records that may reveal vulnerabilities to a public agency's information technology system;
  • Preliminary notes, drafts, inter or intra-agency memoranda which are not used or retained by a public agency in decision-making;
  • Pending litigation that involves a public agency or entity;
  • Juvenile records and information.

Public county records may also be accessible from third-party websites. Record seekers may opt to use these non-governmental platforms to search for a specific record or multiple county 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.
