Public Information Requests to the Kendall County Criminal District Attorney’s Office
The Texas Public Information Act gives the public the right to request access to government information. A Public Information Request is a request for public information contained in the files or records of a Texas governmental agency. Public Information Requests are governed by provisions of the Public Information Act as set out in Chapter 552 of the Texas Government Code. A requestor must ask for records or information already in existence. The Act does not require a governmental body to create new information, to do legal research, or to answer questions. A governmental body may make inquiries of a requestor in order to establish proper identification.
In compliance with Texas Government Code 552.205, basic information about the rights of a requestor, the responsibilities of a governmental body, and the procedures for inspecting or obtaining a copy of public information under the Public Information Act is provided at the following links:
The Public Information Act – English Ley De Información Pública – En Español
