Are all public records available for inspection?
All public records are available for public inspection, unless the law specifically exempts them. The Public Records Act (RCW 42.56) and other statutes, list types of documents or information that is exempt from public inspection and copying. If only a portion of a record is exempt from disclosure, a Public Records Specialist or designee will redact the exempt portions before providing the record. Should any information not be produced, an “Exemption Log” will be provided with the responsive records.Public Records Act (RCW 42.56)
