We’ve all heard of public records – documents that are filed by official agencies and made publicly available – but many people don’t know much about them. Public records can be very beneficial to all of us. They provide useful information regarding many aspects of everyday life.
You may wonder who decides whether or not records will be made available to the public. Certain types of information are declared to be publicly permissible by the government. Other information, such as anything that is private or personal, is kept completely confidential.
