The Local Records Committee works to protect your records held at local governmental agencies. Here is a link to the Identity Theft Brochure, E-Publications, Office of the Attorney General, 2006.
Have you ever wondered how long government agencies keep public records? Who decides which records can be destroyed and which to preserve? These are the types of questions addressed by the Local Records Committee, made up of the State Archivist, and representatives from both the State Auditor’s office and the Attorney General’s office. They decide the schedule and procedures for records retention, preservation, and destruction of public records produced and held at the various local government agencies.
