In accordance with the Kentucky Open Records Act, this website provides every person living in Kentucky with the right to obtain, observe, and search for public records. The act specifies that all records and government information are presumed public and available to citizens.
The tools on this website help to ensure that all members of the general public have the right and ability to access these records easily and concisely, without necessary requiring personal information.
The information documented on this website includes criminal records, court records, vital records, and over 41 million transparent public records.
Kentucky public records were created starting in the year 1852, and from all 120 counties in the state. Digitization of public records has become the standard over the past 30 years, and more are digitized with each passing year. This means that both third party and governmental websites can offer these records with increased reliability. This helps to ensure Kentucky abides by the commitment of the United States of America to remain a fair and just society for all.
