Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests
Since 1967, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) has provided the public the right to request access to records from any federal agency. It is often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government. Federal agencies are required to disclose any information requested under the FOIA unless it falls under one of nine exemptions which protect interests such as personal privacy, national security, and law enforcement.
Public records and other documentation may be requested through the Freedom of Information Act. Please email the FOIA Officer, Sheriff C. Scott Moser or call 804-633-1120 for details.
The Virginia Freedom of Information Advisory Council is available to answer any general questions you may have about FOIA. The Council may be contacted by email or by phone at 804-225-3056 or toll free 1-866-448-4100.
