Mississippi Public Records

The Mississippi Public Records Act is found in Title 25, Chapter 61, of the Mississippi Code of 1972. It makes public records (books, papers, letters, recordings, maps, etc., recorded in the course of public business) available for inspection by all persons.

Some exceptions are: records that would hinder ongoing investigations; records whose release would disclose private personal information about a citizen; records that would endanger the life or safety of public officials or law enforcement personnel; trade secrets; certain academic records; certain appraisal records; registries of concealed weapons permits; tax returns; and hospital records.

Use the resources below to research the more common records at the state level.  For other records, try the menus on the side.

  • Court System - The Mississippi court system has six levels. First are Municipal Courts, handling misdemeanors, ordinances, and traffic violations. Second are Justice Courts (small claims, felony prelim. hearings, misdemeanors & traffic offenses outside a municipality), and County Courts (juvenile matters, eminent domain, civil to $200K, misdemeanors, non-capital felonies). Third are Chancery Courts, which handle equity, adoption, custody, divorce, guardianship, wills, mental illness, and also juvenile matters through a Youth Court division. Fourth are Circuit Courts, which handle felony & civil cases, and appeals from lower courts. Fifth is the Court of Appeals, which reviews opinions from lower courts. Sixth is the Supreme Court, which can review cases from the Appeals court and all others.  Mississippi Court Records
