Northampton County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Northampton County Public Records?

North Hampton public records provide information created, received, and used by the county’s government agencies. The records are public regardless of physical form or storage method and include written or typed documents, papers, pictures, letters, audio or video recordings, and electronically stored information. However, some records are not public because they have been sealed by a court or exempted by statute. These records may have parts redacted, or the whole record may be exempted from public view. Examples of information exempted from public record laws include but is not limited to the following:

  • Plans or blueprints of a government or public structure, the disclosure of which creates a likelihood of endangering the safety or physical security of the building, public utility, facility, or information storage system.
  • Employment application and information of an applicant not hired by a government agency.
  • Any information the disclosure of which would cause a government agency to lose federal or state funds.
  • Records of an individual's medical, psychiatric or psychological history or disability status, including an evaluation, consultation, prescription, or related information that would disclose individually identifiable health information.
  • Records that disclose trade secrets or other confidential proprietary information.

Public city 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 city 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.

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