Monroe County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Monroe County Public Records?

Under Pennsylvania Right To Know Law, Monroe County public records are information that documents the activities of a public body. They include documents created, received, or retained by public bodies while carrying out their official duties. Records are not limited to physical form or characteristics. They may appear as a document, paper, letter, graph, map, book, tape, photograph, film, sound recording, and more. In compliance with the Pennsylvania Right To Know Law, all documents in possession of public bodies are public records until proven otherwise.

Nonetheless, due to sensitive information, some records may be restricted. The law permits public bodies to withhold documents that are not in favor of public interest. Some of the documents that may be exempt from Monroe County public records search include:

  • Information that may result in physical harm or threaten the safety of persons involved
  • Information about security intelligence that may jeopardize public safety
  • Documents that reveal building plans or other infrastructures
  • Documents that reveal personal information such as medical history, psychological history, disability status, and more
  • Documents that disclose personal identifiers such as driver's license number, social security number, personal financial information, and more

Public county records may also be accessible from third-party websites. Record seekers may 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

Government agencies do not sponsor third-party sites. Because of this, record availability and results may vary.
