Arizona Public Records

Arizona Title 39 of the Public Records Act established an open policy that requires all public records be open to inspection by any person during office hours. These records can be documents, computer printouts, tapes, films, recordings, writings, or other items made or kept by public employees in the transaction of public business.

Exceptions to this open policy include vital records, documents that would compromise personal privacy, research documents, medical records, and records relating to ongoing investigations.

We have placed the more useful AZ statewide resources on this page for you.  Make use of the menu items on the left to reach more resources, such as license databases, or city and county resources.

  • Court System - There are four levels in the Arizona court system. At the first level are the limited jurisdiction courts: 83 Municipal (city) courts; and 87 Justice of the Peace Courts. These courts are not required to keep permanent records of court proceedings. The second level is the Superior Court of Arizona, which is the statewide trial court of general jurisdiction, has the widest variety of case type, and keeps permanent records. The Superior Courts have 174 judges and 97 pro tempore judges, commissioners, and hearing officers. At the third level are the Appellate Courts, which review trials and decisions on appeal, and employs 22 judges. At the top is the Arizona Supreme Court, which handles death penalty and other appeals, and cases involving elected officials and county disputes.  Arizona Court Records
