Cape and Islands District Attorney's Office Guidelines for Public Records Request

Guidelines for Public Records Request

Please be as specific as possible

When submitting a Public Records Request to this Office, please be as specific as possible when describing the records you seek.  The more specific you are, the more efficiently we can respond to your request.  For example, if you ask for “any and all records” it will take more time (and will likely be more costly) than if you request “all police reports,” because we will be required to locate and review a higher volume of records.
