Utah Public Records

In Utah, a public record is defined as a book, letter, document, paper, map, plan, photograph, film, card, tape, recording, electronic data, or other documentary material that is prepared or kept by a government body or subdivision.

Here you’ll see statewide resources organized alphabetically.  We’ve tried to provide the most useful of the available Utah databases.  To research records maintained at the counties and cities, refer to the menu on the left side of this page.

  • Court System - The Utah court system has four levels. At the first level are Justice Courts, which are responsible for class B & C misdemeanors, ordinance violations, traffic & parking infractions, & small claims cases. At the second level are District Courts, which are the trial courts of general jurisdiction. They handle civil, criminal felony cases, class A misdemeanors, domestic relations, probate & small claims cases. Also at this level are the Juvenile Courts, which handle criminal, abuse, and dependent matters regarding children. Third is the Court of Appeals, which handles appealed cases from the District & Juvenile Courts. Fourth is the Utah Supreme Court, which handles capital and first degree felony appeals, civil appeals, and oversees decisions by the Court of Appeals.  Utah Court Records
  • Criminal Records - Class B & C misdemeanors, ordinance violations & traffic violations are handled by the Justice Courts. Class A misdemeanors and felonies are handled by the District Courts. As Utah is a closed record state, the Department of Public Safety will only allow you to obtain a certified criminal history check on yourself. However, you can search any name through databases we provide to Utah federal criminal court records, statewide District Court criminal records, statewide Dept of Corrections inmates, and statewide registered offender records.  To access these databases, go to our Utah Criminal Records page.
