Oklahoma Public Records
The Oklahoma Open Records Act, from Title 51, Article III of the State Statutes, requires government public entities to allow the public access to most records. Public records can include documents, books, papers, photographs, microfilms, computer data files, sound recordings, and video records, created or received by public officials in the course of public business.
Restricted records include records protected by a state evidentiary privilege, personal information within driver records, information in the files of the Board of Medicolegal Investigations, and personnel records where disclosure would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.
Oklahoma state databases are listed on this page in alphabetical order. You can reorganize them by Popularity by clicking on that feature. This list contains the more useful statewide databases. For additional resources, use the tools in the side margin. Especially helpful are the menus for county records and categories of records (deeds, property, recorded documents, etc.).
- Court System - The Oklahoma court system has four levels. At the first level are Municipal Courts, which handle violations of city ordinances. Second are the District Courts, which handle most civil and criminal cases. The second level has two special courts: the Workers Compensation Court that hears worker compensation claims; and the Court on Tax Review that hears cases involving illegal tax levies. At the third level is Court of Civil Appeals and the Court of Criminal Appeals. Both handle appealed cases from lower courts as directed by the Supreme Court. Criminal appeals can go no higher than the Court of Criminal Appeals. At the fourth and highest level is the Oklahoma Supreme Court, which reviews civil cases from lower courts.

- Criminal Records - Infractions and city code violations are handled by the Municipal Courts. Misdemeanors and felonies are handled by the District Courts. Criminal cases on appeal from the District Court are heard in the Court of Criminal Appeals, the highest criminal court in the state.
