Public Records Request 

The Tennessee Public Records Act (TPRA) provides that all state, county and municipal records shall, at all times during business hours be open for personal inspection by any citizen of this state, and those in charge of the records shall not refuse such right of inspection to any Tennessee citizen, unless otherwise provided by state law. The Williamson County Public Records Policy is available for inspection and duplication in the Williamson County Archives and the Williamson County Clerk’s Office. The TPRA grants Tennessee citizens the right to access open public records that exist at the time of the request. The TPRA does not require records custodians to compile information or create or recreate records that do not exist.

Do not use this form to request:

  • Arrest records or any law enforcement records. Contact the appropriate law enforcement agency directly (i.e. Franklin Police Department or Williamson County Sheriff’s Office). 
  • Williamson County Schools records. Contact Williamson County Schools District Office: 615-472-4000.
  • Municipal records. You will need to make a request directly with the appropriate city or town.
