What are the Guidelines for Public Records Requests?

Most records are available for public inspection, except those that require review or redaction by legal counsel prior to inspection.   All records in our custody remain the property of Douglas County government. Requestors are not allowed to alter, add or remove anything from these records.  Requestors may not photograph documents. Allowing the inspection and/or copying of public records in the custody of Douglas County is not meant to waive or restrict any    If and when prudent, legal review will need to take place.
