Peoria County Sheriff's Office: Freedom of Information Request

Under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act 5 ILCS 140/1 et seq, certain public records in possession of public agencies may be accessed by the public upon written request.

Some records are not subject to release via the FOIA process; these types of records are described under section 7 of the Act (5 ILCS 140/7) and section 7.5 of the Act (5 ILCS 140/7.5). Some records may also be subject to confidentiality provisions imposed by other state or federal statutes or court orders. The FOIA process for disclosure of information does not supersede these other applicable statutory and judicial mandates.
