Louisiana Public Records

The Louisiana State Records mission is to provide to every person the right to obtain, preview, detect and examine public records, ensuring residents of the state of Louisiana are provided access in accordance with the Louisiana Public Records Act, which grants any person a right to examine and copy public documents in the possession of the state and its political subdivisions:

The main goal is to enable all members of the general public the right to access Louisiana state public records easily, efficiently and concisely and without the requester having to specify a “need to know.” Any person of the age of majority may request records under the Louisiana Public Records Act; therefore, all public records are open for use except those specifically restricted by law.

Louisiana State Records houses the information about the following subjects: Criminal Records, Court Records, Vital Records and State Background Check, including the information in the number of over 42 million public records.

The search functionality granted in this portal enables the requested information to be presented immediately and accurately. The information of Louisiana state public records has been collected from as far back as the year of 1819and include information from 64 parishes, thereby ensuring Louisiana abides by the commitment of the United States of America to remain a “fair and just” society for all.
