Illinois Public Records

Following the tenets put in place by the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, Illinois State Records has a mission to facilitate people's’ right to seek out, examine, and copy public records. The act specifies that all records, documents, and information produced by a government or law enforcement agency is presumed public and available to all U.S. citizens.

The primary goal of this website is to simplify the process of collecting public records from the convenience of home, and without providing personal information, filling out request forms, or providing a reason for wanting public records. This exempts records deemed private through legal action of the original record subject or by the state in a court of law.

Illinois State backgrounds includes information on criminal records, court records, vital records, and over 110 million additional public records.

Illinois started creating public records in 1800 and these records typically include information from all 102 Illinois counties. Over the past 30 years, digitization of public records has become the standard, meaning both third party and government websites are offering these records with increased reliability. This availability ensures Illinois abides by the commitment of the United States of America to remain a fair and just society for all.
