Utah has set up a website called the Open Records Portal, which is a centralized tool to request government public records (Government Records Access and Management Act - GRAMA) from any agency. It is a well-organized tool with many different resources, such as a database of all agencies, a list of cities, towns, and counties. It also splits out educational agencies, transit districts, government bodies, special service districts, local districts, and interlocals. This agency also supplies statistics and government reports for your perusal.
Utah uses the term "government entity" to refer to government agencies that create, store, maintain, and share public records. Some examples might be state schools, the Department of Transportation, city offices like the Mayor's office, the courts, law enforcement, and many others.
"Record means a book, letter, document, paper, map, plan, photograph, film, card, tape, recording, electronic data, or other documentary material regardless of physical form or characteristics:
(i) that is prepared, owned, received, or retained by a governmental entity or political subdivision; and
(ii) where all of the information in the original is reproducible by photocopy or other mechanical or electronic means."
The Utah Division of Archives and Records Service is the agency in charge of all public record archives. They offer the public a generous website with many options for browsing digital collections. Along with vital records, they keep military, government, and other historical documents. You can visit them in person to view the source documents or collect copies for yourself. They also list retention schedules, so you know how long records in each agency are kept and when they are destroyed.
The Utah.gov Open Records Portal provides the resources and instructions for making a public records request. Their guidelines are as follows:
You may visit certain government agencies in person to request records, but you might be asked to use the portal instead.
The Utah Department of Public Safety Bureau of Criminal Identification offers public criminal records upon request. They make it easy to get a copy of your own state or national criminal record. They do charge a fee for this service. Additionally, you can contact local police for criminal records. You can consult court records to find information on convicted offenders and check out the Department of Corrections website also to search for offenders and their criminal records there also.
Some common types of criminal records in Utah include (but are not limited to):
The Utah Court is the government agency in charge of all courts, and Court records in Utah. Their website is relatively simple but does include links to search District Court and Appellate Court cases. You can also review court filings, court transcripts, and find out about filing fees. There is also a section that talks about non-public court records that are private and kept confidential. You can also visit the courthouse in person to request copies of court records.
Some types of court records in Utah include:
The court system in Utah consists of four simple levels. The top-level is the Supreme Court, then the Court of Appeals, then District Court, and finally Juvenile and Justice Courts.
To find Utah arrest records and other criminal files, you must contact either The Utah Department of Public Safety Bureau of Criminal Identification or local police. You can also visit the Utah Courts to search for arrest records that way. One final resource would be the Utah Department of Correction to find arrest data on convicted felons.
Some different types of arrests records in Utah are:
Utah's Department of Health, Vital Records and Statistics Office is the government agency in charge of all vital records for the state. They state their mission as "The Office of Vital Records and Statistics maintains records for births, stillbirths, deaths, marriages, and divorces that occurred in the State of Utah." They have records dating back to 1905. You can request copies in person, online, and through the mail.
Along with criminal, court, arrest, and vital records, other types of public records you can find in the state of Utah include, but are not limited to:
