Public Record Requests

It is the goal of the Tippecanoe County Board of Commissioners and its departments to comply with the provisions of Indiana Code 5-14-3 (Access to Public Records Act) for the County's public records. In an effort to ensure compliance with the Code and to promote full access to the County's public records, the Board of Commissioners on June 4th, 2012, approved the Tippecanoe County Public Records Policy. This policy covers the Office of the Commissioners along with its departments.

Public Records Policy
As part of the Public Records Policy (PDF), the County has developed an Access to Public Records request form. This is an OPTIONAL form that the public can use when seeking disclosure of public records. It can be completed online, then printed and either mailed or faxed to us - or you can scan it and send it by email.

Public Records Request Form
Copies of both the access to public records policy and the Public Records Request Form (PDF) are available at the offices of the Board of Commissioners and its departments.

The Indiana Public Access Counselor's site provides advice and assistance concerning Indiana's public access laws to members of the public and government officials and their employees.
