Public Records Requests
How do I submit a public records request?
It is our policy to respond to public record requests in an orderly, consistent and reasonable manner in accordance with the Oregon Public Records Law.
In order to request access to these documents and materials, the request must include the following:
Please be advised that there may be a fee to cover staff time researching and retrieving the documents. You will be notified of estimated fees and costs in advance. Payment is required before MCSO will produce the documents. The fee may be reduced or waived if it is determined the release of the information is in the interest of the public.
Why pay a fee? The Public Records Law expressly authorizes public agencies to establish reasonable fees to be reimbursed for the actual costs of making the records available. Actual costs may include materials and mailing expenses, as well as staff time spent locating, reviewing, copying records or supervising a person’s inspection of original records.
Fees are set by the Multnomah County Board of Commissioners each fiscal year and can be reviewed in the Master Fee Schedule updated annually.
How much does it cost?
*If you are a victim, there is no charge for report copies. However, there may be additional charges for other types of records or documents.
