Pawtucket Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Pawtucket City Public Records?

The Rhode Island APRA describes Pawtucket City public records as information produced or received by a public agency or as required by the agency to perform its official business. According to the act, public records should be available to parties that submit official requests to the custodian agency, regardless of the record's characteristics or physical form. Generally, Pawtucket City public records may be documents, books, tapes, films, photographs, sound recordings, electronic data, and other forms of record storage. Members of the general public may inspect or obtain most public records in Pawtucket City. However, Rhode Island law considers some records confidential and exempts them from public disclosure. The following are examples of exempt records:

  • All tax returns
  • All records considered confidential by federal law or regulation, state law, or court rule
  • Records containing information protected by the attorney-client privilege
  • Medical information, including details related to a doctor-patient relationship
  • Trade secrets, financial information, or commercial information of a confidential nature
  • Law enforcement records created for criminal law enforcement purposes and related to crime investigation and detection. These records are confidential to the extent that they would compromise an investigation, reveal law enforcement techniques, deprive a person of their right to a fair trial, or endanger the life or safety of any person
  • Preliminary drafts, memoranda, notes, work products, or working papers created or maintained by a public agency. However, such records submitted at a public meeting are considered open to public disclosure
  • Health records containing a patient’s medical history, condition, diagnosis, or treatment
  • School district documents created to protect students from threats
  • Real estate appraisal, evaluation, engineering, and feasibility estimate records for property acquisition or construction contracts until the acquisition is complete or contract is awarded
  • Mental health care records, unless disclosure is allowed by mental health law for court proceedings, or if the subject or the subject’s guardian provides written permission
  • Family court records of delinquent, neglected, or mentally defective children
  • Security plans and scientific or technological secrets of law enforcement agencies where disclosure could affect security or public welfare
  • Examination data, such as scoring keys and test questions, used for academic, employment, licensing, or promotion examinations
  • Advisory opinion requests until the agency discloses the opinion

In addition to government agencies. public city records may also be accessible from third-party websites. Record seekers may either opt to use these non-governmental platforms to search for a specific record or multiple city records. However, users will need to provide enough information to assist with the search, such as:

  • The address of the requestor
  • A case number or file number (if known)
  • The location of the document or person involved
  • The name of the subject involved in the record (not juvenile)
  • The last known or current address of the registrant

Third-party sites are not sponsored by government agencies. Because of this, record availability and results may vary.
