Instant Access to State, County and Municipal Public Records
Nevada Public Records
The Nevada State Records mission is to provide every person the right to detect, obtain, preview and examine public records, thus enabling the residents of Nevada to preserve the knowledge about state and local government activities and the conduct of the people within.
The main purpose for giving access to this information is to offer citizens and any other interested individual the ability to research and request information discreetly and in accordance with Nevada Public Records Law, which states that government-generated records must be available to the public.
In order to access, preview, and examine these records, interested citizens do not have to specify their reason for wanting a record. The exception is if the requested record has been made confidential.
Nevada began collecting information about criminal records, court records, vital records, and more in 1851, and these public records usually include information from all 16 counties thereby continuing to ensure that our community remains a “free and just” society for all. Since the late 80s, digitization of public records has become the standard, meaning government websites and third party organizations are increasingly offering these records online.
