What records can be requested and provided?

A public record is defined as a writing that is prepared, owned, used or retained by the Department. Some records are exempt from public disclosure under federal and state laws and ordinances. Examples of records the Department is prohibited from disclosing include: personnel, medical or similar files; communications between the Department and our attorneys are protected by the attorney-client privilege. If a responsive document contains both exempt and non-exempt information, the Department will redact the exempt material and make the remainder of the record available to the requesting party.
