RESOURCES FOR WISCONSIN OPEN RECORDS

RESOURCES FOR WISCONSIN OPEN RECORDS

 

Here is some contact information to help you make an Open Records Request under Section 19.31, et seq. of the Wisconsin Statutes.

This can be done without hiring a lawyer. If you are looking for records for a criminal arrest, the law enforcement agency making the arrest may deny your request pending a charging decision from the District Attorney. Both the law enforcement agency and the District Attorney may legally deny an open record request while an incident is being investigated. If a Felony is charged, release of the incident report and any other material being sought can be denied until after the Preliminary Hearing.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice provides a very detailed summary of rights and procedures in Wisconsin Public Records Law Compliance Guide.

At the Law Office of Michael Hayes, LLC, an immediate open record request is made in most cases, and if criminal charges are issued, a Discovery Demand

is made to the District Attorney, as well as continuing open record requests to the arresting law enforcement agency. Of particular importance is finding all evidence supporting innocence.
