Syracuse Public Records

What are Syracuse Public Records?

Pursuant to New York Freedom of Information Law, Syracuse public records include any document or information produced, filed, held, maintained, or reproduced by local or state agencies—except where restricted by law. Syracuse public records may be typewritten, handwritten, or in electronic format. However, there are grounds for which certain parts of a public record will be redacted. They include:

  • Personal privacy
  • Interference with contract awards or union negotiations
  • Law enforcement records, but only if disclosure would:
  • Interfere with law enforcement investigations or judicial proceedings
  • Deprive a person of a right to a fair trial or impartial adjudication
  • Identify a confidential source or disclose confidential information related to a criminal investigation
  • Reveal criminal investigative techniques or procedures, except routine techniques and procedures.
  • Inter-agency or intra-agency materials (internal communications or memos), except the agency, must disclose:
  • Factual information
  • Instruction to staff that affect the public
  • Final agency policy or determinations
  • External audits

Are Syracuse Criminal Records Public?

Not all New York criminal records are public records. The custodian of the criminal records determines if the record qualifies as a public record. For example, the New York Criminal Justice Services Division provides requesters with access to suppressed (sealed) or unsuppressed (unsealed) criminal records through a personal record review system. This service is offered to the subject of the record and to some law enforcement agencies only. It includes detailed information about the owner of the record. At the same time, the New York State Office of the Court of Administration (OCA) permits third parties to perform criminal record searches (CHRS) on behalf of another person. Individuals apprehended or detained by the Syracuse Police Department can request copies of their criminal records from the Police Department's Office.
