Nevada Public Records

In Nevada, all public books and public records of a governmental entity are considered public records. Chapter 239 of the State Legislature outlines the Nevada Open Records Act, which allows citizens the access to inspect and copy public books and documents. Exemptions include records that would infringe on personal privacy, information that could jeopardize an active investigation, trade secrets, and records whose release could endanger the public or the state government and its employees.

This page displays the more popular public record resources in Nevada.  More databases can be found using the left-side menus.  We recommend looking at the Categories displayed, or searching by county, as many records are kept at that level.

  • Court System - The Nevada court system has four levels. At the first level are Municipal Courts, which handle civil matters up to $3,500, misdemeanors, and traffic violations & infractions. Second are Justice Courts, which handle civil cases up to $10,000, small claims, misdemeanors, and felony preliminary hearings. At the third level are the District Courts, which handle civil cases over $10,000, and criminal felony & misdemeanor cases. At the top is the Nevada Supreme Court.
