Purpose of the Open Records Act
The purpose of the Open Records Act is both to encourage public access to information and to foster confidence in government through openness
to the public. The intent of the General Assembly was to afford to the public at large a right of access to government records generally, while
permitting some narrow categories of information to be withheld where nondisclosure was believed to be in the public interest.
Carroll County Sheriff's Office open records request should be directed through our Open Records Clerk.
